First Event of The Festival Series now set for September in Bratislava

1st Stop: Bratislava

Malta - April 27, 2021: The Festival Series is now set to begin in Bratislava, Slovakia from September 20-26, 2021, instead of Tallinn in June. The same level of excitement and fun is guaranteed, just with a slight delay (and more build-up).

The decision comes following careful monitoring of the COVID situation across Europe, which sadly is still recording high numbers. And as previously communicated, player safety has always been top of mind from the inception of this event. This is why a COVID contingency plan was put into place from the start to protect our attendees.

Players who have won packages for The Festival in Tallinn can be assured that they will roll over to the Bratislava stop. There will be no unusable tickets and no player will get left behind. This way, players can feel safer and more confident about attending the event.

“We want the first event to be explosive” says Martin “Franke” von Zweigbergk, who is leading the event organization, “and we truly believe we can achieve this at a better capacity if we launch the Series at this slightly later date in Bratislava. The situation in Europe should be significantly better by September. Yes, it already feels like an eternity because it’s been so long since we had live poker on a large scale. However, we promise it will be worth the wait.” 

Now the full focus is shifting onto The Festival in Bratislava - currently set to be the first event of The Festival Series from September 20-26, 2021. Preparations are in full swing with maximum effort to make this a memorable inaugural event. More stops for The Festival Series will be announced in due course, with June 13-19, 2022 as the new date for the Tallinn event and one of the confirmed stops for 2022.
