Over the past weeks, our world has turned upside down. Through these uncertain times and for the health and safety of our beloved family, staff and artists, we are deeply sorry to announce Flash Festival Tuscany is to be postponed until 13th – 15th May 2021.

FLASH HQ have lived 4 of the worst weeks of its life. We went through that unexpected roller coaster of emotions, planning ahead for so many different scenarios, but this situation has become bigger than us. The world has gone mad, our travellers are blocked by travel bans and, most of all, our dear lovely home, Italy is suffering.

We started FLASH in 2017 with a vision to connect people from around the world to share the nature, style and taste of Tuscany. Instead of getting married, having kids and buying a house, we started a festival. No sponsors, no partners, solely independent, we worked for 3 years building an authentic brand and giving our all to produce a music, food and wine experience in Tuscany. For this reason, we remain fully committed to fighting for FLASH Festival and its ethos throughout this gap year of 2020. We promise that we will come back stronger than ever, with more creations and ideas – just for you!

As event professionals, we solve problems deemed impossible to some, and happy to do it with smiles on our face. Although, this challenge we face now is beyond our control. When we have to postpone or cancel a show, we not only let you down, but we let down the artists and their teams, our team of freelancers and suppliers, the local community and businesses. We don’t just shut shop for 4-12 weeks, we close for the whole year with everything we’ve worked for taken away from us. Unfortunately, the live events industry is at threat and if you love going to events, festivals or gigs, now is your time to fight with us through 2020 – we need you more than ever!

To all you amazing people who have bought your tickets and add-ons, hold onto them as they are transferred to new dates 13th – 15th May 2021. We would like to thank you for holding onto both tickets and add-ons and standing by us through these difficult times by gifting each of you with a bottle of wine at FLASH Festival 2021 and as you are our Numero Uno supporters… a complimentary ticket to FLASH Festival 2022! We understand that not everyone will be able to attend in 2021, in which case ticket & add-on holders can contact ciao@flashfestivaltuscany.com before 14.04.2020.

For those ticket holders that have already booked travel, accommodation and/or car hire – we are here to help with any enquiries we can to transfer your bookings to May 2021. We have collected information from all relevant travel sites and can be found here for your reference.

We are deeply saddened by this and please know this was not by choice. We understand that people are living through crazy times of uncertainty and fear but remember we must get through this together. Let’s all keep healthy, stay connected, be kind to each other and let’s look forward to better days ahead!

The show will go on…

Tanto Amore
