15/04/2020 - Covid-19 - update - Sjock 45 postponed

As most of you may know, we would have celebrated our 45th consecutive edition of Sjock this year with an amazing line up.

So it is with a heavy heart that we have to announce that we will have to postpone this edition to 2021.

We're very sad about this but we do believe it is in the best interest for everyones health and safety and so we will follow the National Security Council’s measures to the letter.

We are in touch with all confirmed bands and hope they can make it to SJOCK next year.

Let’s hope we can make SJOCK 45 in 2021 a Highlight worth the extra wait..


For all who bought presale tickets for Sjock 2020 : we will contact you through e-mail soon!

BIG LOVE from your Sjock team! ❤

SJOCK Festival 45

9-10-11 July 2021

23/03/2020 - Corona - update

We’re still working hard towards bringing you "Your Rock 'n Roll Highlight of the Year’ this Summer!

But, because nobody knows where this Corona thing is headed in the near future, there are a whole bunch of uncertainties.

That’s why we have decided to put our presale ‘on hold’. That means as of right now there will be no tickets available until further notice.

Already purchased tickets will stay valid! The festival is not cancelled yet (and let’s hope it doesn’t come to that either…)!

In the event of cancellation or large changes to our line up (due to possible travel restrictions, restraints on event size,…) Sjock will come up with a fair settlement regarding purchased tickets.
This means refunds if required.

We will keep reassessing the situation constantly with all the new information presented to us by the local and Belgian federal government. In the event of any changes we will communicate these changes through all our social media channels, our website www.sjock.com and our newsletter.

Please keep your hopes up.


Follow all guidelines to battle the virus. Keep your loved ones safe. Thank everyone with essential occupations.

Be kind to one another! Now more than ever.

BIG LOVE from your Sjock team!
