    Coronavirus impacting festivals?

    by Tiki108 » Tue Mar 10, 2020 5:37 pm

    So, anyone else worried that this won't get better before the summer music festivals start and they'll get cancelled? I'm supposed to be going to Graspop, but I haven't even booked our flights yet cause there's been a lot of issues surrounding cancellations and refunds. In my line of work I often handle dispute claims and we've had so many right now with not only airline disputes, but travel insurance not wanting to cover cancellations, even when they have been "cancel for any reason" policies.

      My next festival is Psycho Las Vegas, which is in August. Hopefully by then all this coronacrap has vanished??

      I really hope it's all gone before then, but seems like it's only getting worse. :cry:

        Yes, because this became a "named event." Once a disaster is named, then CFAR insurance purchased after the event start doesn't cover it. :evil:

        DARK MOFO festival in Tasmania won't go ahead this year because of this.

        My Chemical Romance have pulled out of DOWNLOAD JAPAN, scheduled to take place 29th March. So, without a headliner I'm guessing that one won't go ahead.

        No word on Download Australia yet, scheduled to take place next weekend.

        But yeah, this isn't blowing over in a hurry. I wouldn't want to planning to hit any Euro festivals in the summer :(

        Australia has now imposed a 14-day quarantine for all visitors to Australia.

        No end date at this stage.

        Can say goodbye to any International tours at all for the foreseeable future.

        Lions Metal Festival has been postponed, initial dates were June 5th & 6th and now scheduled for Sept 4th and 5th with the same line-up (incl notably Fleshgod Apocalypse and Primordial) minus 1 band. I already had my tix so still going...

        Maryland Deathfest just postponed the entire event to next year,this is going to be the equivalent of The Year Without a Summer -culture wise.

        Cannot be long until Wacken 2020 calls it.

        Not until the end of July but the logistics around that festival would be insanely complex so they can't sit on the fence for much longer.

        And experts are saying it will be maybe a year until a vaccine is released, so I cannot see a festival of 100,000 people from all over the world 4 months time will happen.

        I'm hoping Graspop announces their postponement soon. I'm sure it will be, but flights are cheap and I don't want to book anything until I know what's happening. I also have a cruise in Europe in August and I'm sure that'll be cancelled to, but I'm supposed to pay for it May 1st.
