Let It Roll was one of the last holdouts of the European summer festival season and they tried, they really did, to keep the festival going. Working directly with the Czech Culture Minister, posting livestreams and even creating a hashtag, which they successfully got trending. #letssavethesummertogether was focused not only on trying to keep the party alive but donating masks to healthcare workers and keeping people stuck in their homes entertained.
Here’s the official statement, along with information on how to receive a voucher for credit toward a different festival and information on selling tickets:
The period we are all going through at the moment is incredibly difficult and together we are facing something that we consider to be one of our worst nightmares. You, the fans of our festival, are the energy from which we draw all year round, and together with the love for drum & bass you are the reason why we organize the festival. Without you and your support, Let It Roll would not be the biggest drum & bass festival, so the following lines are not easy for us to write.
This year’s summer festival was supposed to be the biggest in Let It Roll history and with this vision, the entire LIR crew has been working on it since last summer. We had a dream lineup ready for you, a new and even more sophisticated visual show for all five stages, including a breathtaking opening show. We also had more news in regards to the site plan for an even better festival experience. We simply went “all in” this year because we wanted to prepare a festival you would never forget. We are all sorry that we have to inform you with heavy hearts that we are forced to postpone this year’s Let It Roll 2020 to the summer of 2021, specifically August 5-7, 2021. This summer we will unfortunately not meet at the Milovice airfield. We will now devote all our energy to the preparations of Let It Roll 2021, especially its line up, which we will try to put together for you at least as good as we planned for this year.

FUTURE OF LET IT ROLL
It amazes us how the whole drum & bass community is coming together in these difficult times and is ready to help each other out. Several of you have brought us to our knees with messages that even if the festival is canceled, you will not return your ticket and that, on the contrary, you would like to buy a new ticket for the following year. Many thanks to all these Immortalz. You can also support Let It Roll by buying a limited edition of Let It Roll merchandise we will bring during this week.
Let It Roll has been here with us for 18 years and we believe that it will continue for at least another 18 years. Most of us remember the rainy Oplatil or extreme temperatures in 2018. But we didn’t stop and Let It Roll has improved every year to its current state we know today – thanks to you as well. We keep going and even though the festival will not take place this year, we want to offer you a different version of it. Follow us on social media and we will soon introduce a new concept to you. We look forward to meeting you again at the Milovice airfield in 2021 and to celebrating the love for drum & bass together.
Thank you for your patience, your understanding in this difficult situation and for your endless support!
