Eye of the 'Storm
Updates? Where do we start?
We've already highlighted the challenges that are facing not only WinterStorm but every band, manager, agent, promoter and fan out there summed up with the single word UNCERTAINTY!
That said, it is where we find ourselves and we just have to get on with it. So the paragraphs below outline exactly where we re at this moment of time in the February 2021
It is still planned that WinterStorm V will return to Troon this year over the weekend of 26th to 27th November 2021.
We have tried in the following summary paragraphs and the more detailed page links to outline everything that is being done between now and then. The summary is on this page; the details on each of the links and of course we will answer everything that we can through email and the Facebook Page too. So sadly here we go.
When we mapped out our Road Map back in March 2020, I think we all assumed that WinterStorm could go ahead as there were still eight months to go... Well here we are a year on and the uncertainty still remains but at this point we are planning FULLY for the event taking place in 2021.
As with 2020, there are question marks over venue, band travel, restrictions, local lock downs and to be honest even if these weren't issues it is crystal clear that there is still an underlying reluctance from you the ticket holder to expose yourselves to unnecessary risk. Add in the wonders of BREXIT and you can get a sense of the challenges facing the live music industry.
But here we are and here is what the plan is for 2021 and beyond.
Line up for 2021
We have been continue liaison with all of the bands regarding their appearance at WinterStorm this year and we updated the line up on 14th February 2021. We have had a couple of bands pull due to Brexit and travel and we obviously have concerns about the international bands on the line up but that is in common with everyone in the industry. There is nothing yet to indicate that we will lose these bands but we have planned for it with contingencies in place should it happen.
- Revised line up has been announced
- Refunds guaranteed until Sunday 28th February 2021
Tickets and Refunds
First and foremost this is about you the ticket holder. For a hundred reasons we want you to hold onto your ticket and we'll outline them further on the link but we have always stated that a no quibble guarantee would be in place. In summary
- Full refunds can be claimed immediately or right through until 28th February 2021 on confirmation of the 2021 line up
- Tickets can be carried over to 2022 at the 2020 prices.
- Ticket and accommodation packages can be carried over to 2022 but a small hotel supplement may apply for some properties
- The remaining 2021 tickets and packages will be available to purchase on 7th February 2021
WinterStorm 2022 will take place over the weekend of 25th - 27th of November 2022
Storm Force Eight and Ten Direct Debit Plans
All Storm Force Ten direct debit tickets have been paid in full and carried forward and refunds issued for those requested.
Storm Force Eight tickets ware now available - eight payments by direct debit from February 28th.
All of your ticket money is ring-fenced and not being used for day to day operations. We appreciate your trust and faith in us as promoters but in this new world we believe that this has to be backed up by the absolute knowledge that should we fail (and we have no plans to fail we can assure you) then your ticket money is secure and refundable.
