The Voodoo Music + Arts Experience is canceled. The famous multi-day music and arts festival held in City Park, New Orleans, Louisiana has canceled its 2020 edition. Through a public announcement, the popular festival announced they will not return until next year.
As the COVID-19 situation continues evolving, every industry throughout the world continues trying to adapt to these extreme times. The entertainment event industry, music festivals especially, have had a hard time adjusting and facing the current situation.
More and more festivals are getting canceled, and rescheduling has proven to be a tough measure taken by many. However, due to the uncertainty of how long the virus and pandemic will last, it’s hard to claim any festival will take place during 2020.
Voodoo Music + Arts Experience Cancelled.
Now, Voodoo Music + Arts Experience enters the list. The festival that has hosted more than 2000 artists cancels its 2020 edition. As most festivals have done, they encourage the purchasers to hold on to their tickets for next year. Cash money is something every event organizer needs right now. However, refunds will also be available.
The fact that Voodoo Music + Arts Experience- an October event- decided to cancel this year’s edition says a lot. While many events and festivals have been rescheduled for later in the year, the situation remains uncertain. Authorities have declared massive events will take a while to come back. Some will not risk hosting massive events until a vaccine has been created. Even as festivals continue claiming this year’s edition will happen, nothing is for sure.
Right now, there’s nothing to do but wait. Fall seems far ahead. However, if there’s one thing we have learned, it is that the current situation can change at any moment. Safety remains the most important thing so all we can do is just wait and hope for the best.
