Darklands has announced postponing the 2021 edition to April 2021 or possibly even later. The exact date is not yet released and won’t be as long as there is no final “go’” That ‘go’ means approval from authorities after a vaccine or cure for COVID-19 is available.
In a a short message on Facebook, Darklands has cast doubts over the 2021 edition.
When the Darklands crew decided on ‘water‘ as the theme for 2021 and the video editor made the trailer, no-one imagined how disruptive coronavirus COVID-19 would be.
