2020[edit | edit source]

The 2020 edition of Esbjerg Fuzztival would be initially announced on 13 June 2019,[7] with the first band announcements on 22 November.[8] By 16 March 2020 the full lineup would be revealed and initially set for 8 + 9 May 2020, including a pre-fest on 7 May performed by Khan and Stew surrounding a screening of Such Hawks, Such Hounds.[9] Several bands would be announced initially such as Causa Sui, Green Lung, Vokonis, Sacri Monti and The Goners along with eleven other bands.

However not long after this full lineup announcement on 27 March the festival would be re-scheduled to 31 July and 1 August due to The CO-VID19 Pandemic.[10] Tickets would be honored for the 2021 edition should anyone be unable to attend the 2020 edition.[11] A livestream set sponsored by Esbjerg Fuzztival and Weedian would be hosted on 9 May, featuring Slowjoint and Slowjysk Orkenjoint.[12] On 13 May the festival would be pushed back to 4 and 5 September.[13]

On 29 June a new lineup would be announced with Causa Sui and Rotor as the headliners among a thirteen band lineup,[14] seven of whom among the original scheduled lineup. Rotor and Vokonis would drop off on 1 September, with Bogwife and Danish stoner rock legend Uffe Lorenzen (Baby Woodrose) would be the replacements. Ultimately the festival would go as planned with a sold-out lineup (As capacity and CO-VID19 restrictions would allow) on 4 and 5 September 2020 at Tobakken Spillested. Slowjoint would also notably drop off on 4 September, a day before they were supposed to perform.
