We would like to know what you would like to see

The beginning of the survey

It’s probably no surprise to you that we are always busy at CeltCast. Right now, we are making lots of new stuff that we are very exited to share. But we also want to know what kind of content you would like to see, so we’ve made a survey. We would be delighted if you could fill in these eight questions for us.
You can find the survey here!

Right now, we are also making a series about forgotten folk instruments. Is there a weird, forgotten or inspiring instrument you would like to see us make content about? Let us know by sending us an e-mail to: catoverhoeven@ziggo.nl!

Join the Quarantine Concert!

If you have nothing to do today, our friends from Plunder and Joint String Friends are giving a online concert. At 17:00h this afternoon, they will stream their ‘Plundered Friends Quarantine Concert’ from Twitch. Make sure to tune in here: Plundered Friends at Twitch!

Share the love and pain

Alex and Helen at the Midwinter fair

Since earlier this week, having active social media channels has been hard. It is heartbreaking to read all the posts about cancelled and postponed festivals, concerts, and shows.

While we were geared up and ready to start the new festival season, it has been so painful to see that events like Echos & Merveilles – Festival Médiéval Fantastique and Mead & Greed Festival 2020 cancel this year’s events, but also to hear about the fear for Elfia‘s festival at the end of April.

Just as painful is seeing our friends of Sunfire, Rapalje Celtic Folk Music, Cuélebre, The Royal Spuds and so many more having to cancel or move shows. Even worse, thinking about our Italian friends of EMIAN PaganFolk Music, Celkilt and The SIDH, they are litterally locked up in their country. All these artists are faced with weeks of uncertainty.

Not to mention all the people working in this business who are losing weeks of salary due to something as seemingly small as a virus.

Even though we are faced with similar issues, we at CeltCast want all of our friends to know that we think about you all and are there with you all step by step. Let us all hope the issues with this virus are solved quickly and that we can refocus on the joy and happiness music, concerts and festivals bring.

Let’s put our effort in this together, and let us hope that this is just a bumpy start to an awesome season!

Party time on the 13th of June 2020!

The new date of the FA

After the heart-breaking news of yesterday that the Fantasy Awards, planned for tomorrow, couldn’t continue, we have been working on what to do next. We had a number of scenarios in our contingency plan, but most of them were not really what we wanted.

Thanks to the awesome response we got from P60 and the entire Fantasy and Folk scene, we are very happy to announce that we are moving the event to a new date! So mark it in your calendar, the Fantasy Awards will now be held on the 13th of June 2020!

By this time we hope the Corona outbreak is either gone or fully under control and we are free to party again.

We are aiming to keep the line up the same as much as possible, however, if one of our artists or bands are not able to move to this date, we will do our best to have an awesome replacement.

Tickets you have bought already will be valid, however if for some reason you can’t make it on the new date you can get your money back through TicketMaster!

We hope to see you at the Fantasy Awards 19/20 on the 13th of June 2020 in the P60, Amstelveen!


It is with a heavy heart that we have to tell you that we are forced to postpone the Fantasy Awards this Saturday.

Due to the Corona pandemic the Dutch government has ordered to delay or cancel all events with more than 100 people until at least the end of the month. This means that the fantasy awards as we had planned cannot continue. We are really heartbroken.

Currently we are looking into what our alternatives are. We are fanatically communicating and discussing the options. We will inform you all as soon as possible on this.

We ask you all to not send us pm’s right now, and to please wait for the next communication. We understand that you may have questions, but it is likely that we do not have the appropriate answers at this time, as you can imagine, there’s is a lot for all of us to deal with at the moment.

We thank you all for your patience and your continued support!
