We hope you have weathered through these turbulent times and that you are safe and well. We would like to extend our positive thoughts to your family, friends and loved ones. In hard times people often reveal their true nature. We look upon this experience as a friendly reminder to keep closer the ones who showed us genuine concern and comradeship.
All of us are more than eager to be united on the dancefloor and to raise the dust on the Hive, Swamp and Seed. The date is set, next Mo:Dem Festival will be held from 9 to 15 August 2021. Postponement of the 2020 edition brought us unexpected challenges, however, it didn't endanger the future of the festival itself.
UPDATES & UPGRADES - S01E01
What makes Mo:Dem, is the people behind it. Most of the crew is working on the festival since it started, every year over and over again. For all of us, this was a process of learning and growing up and during this time we became a family. Our relations are beyond work-related only, thus the reason for our inexhaustible enthusiasm.
We agreed to reduced salaries and smaller personal expectations, yet we are determined to overcome this crisis without downsizing the team. The obvious, but economically tricky solution was to continue with the build-up instead of pausing. All of the crew is giving its very best to this project and we will continue working hard and developing an even better festival having two years working on one edition.
As preventive measures against pandemic are lowering down we are finally able to plan and execute our concrete future moves. With every day our team at the festival location grows in numbers. The possibility to work restored our optimism. We continued from where we got stopped by the pandemic: two sets of new compost toilets, food court and shop area upgrade and fresh build-up, two completely new bars… and the list goes on.
Stay tuned for information about updates, upgrades and future actions. With your help, we can go far. Stay safe and positive. Keep on your mind that there is no future but our own and what we make of it.
Love. Passion. Commitment.
