Dear Circus-Friends & Artists
With a heavy heart we have to inform you that the YOUNG STAGE festival will not take place this year. We have worked intensively on the possibility of a postponement to September and have come to the conclusion that the risks and uncertainty are too big to plan a big, international event like our festival. The global situation is too uncertain.
YOUNG STAGE is a pure live experience that lives from the international spirit of the artists and from real emotions experienced in a packed tent. We are firmly convinced that we can’t make any major compromises in this regard and of course do not want to endanger the health of visitors and all participants.
We are therefore postponing the 12th edition of the festival to May 2021 and are looking forward to getting back strengthened and with even more power, joy and love for the Circus in one year. We give our best that YOUNG STAGE 2021 will even be more colorful than all the years before!
Your tickets remain valid!
Do you already have tickets for the 12th edition of YOUNG STAGE? Please keep these as they are also valid for the replacement date in May 2021! We will inform you as soon as possible about the new dates and further details.
The selected participants for the festival-competition 2020 remain automatically invited for the new dates. We don’t start a new casting.
Thank you very much!
A big thank you goes to our partners who actively support us in this difficult situation, to the region and the city of Basel for the goodwill, to all artists for the flexibility and all our team-members for the tireless work behind the scenes.
We thank you very much for your understanding, keep you up to date and wish you the very best of health!
Take care everyone!
Yours YOUNG STAGE Team
