Bluesfest 2020 Confirms It Will Still Go Ahead Amidst Coronavirus Concerns


Written by Jackson Langford on March 10, 2020

As festivals, concerts and the like receive cancellations all around the world thanks to coronavirus, Bluesfest is adamant that it’s “business as usual” for the 2020 event as it is set to go ahead in a few weeks time.

In a statement to Music Junkee, Bluesfest organisers affirmed that the festival will still go ahead as planned given the current situation.

“Bluesfest has always, and will always take the necessary actions to protect our patrons,” the statement reads.

“All events of a public nature in Australia are proceeding in the Entertainment and Sporting areas, and we look forward to presenting our best Bluesfest yet. It’s business as usual. We are a fully insured event, and our customers are protected should anything change.”

While no major music event has been cancelled yet in Australia due to coronavirus concerns, the same cannot be said for those elsewhere.

SXSW has been cancelled, which was going to see many Australian artists play. Furthermore, there’s reportedly talks of both Coachella and Stagecoach – both set to take place next month – being postponed to October amidst the concerns.

We’ll keep you posted should there be any further developments. Music Feeds has also reached out to Groovin The Moo, which kicks off next month, for comment on whether they’ll be going ahead.
