Celebrating the 21st festival of the Cape Town International Jazz Festival, Africa’s biggest gathering of Jazz talent, will have to wait. Due to the recent outbreak of the Coronavirus (CODVID-19), the jazz festival has been postponed.
The event was scheduled to take place on the 27th and 28th of March 2020 at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC). Initially, the festival was scheduled to go ahead as planned, as the outbreak of the virus wasn’t yet dangerous. However, the organisers made an announcement on Friday, 13 March, to rather cancel the event.
The festival’s director, Billy Domingo, made the following statement:
He also added:
The event is implementing safety procedures because of the outbreak of the coronavirus and unfortunately, other large festivals including Coachella and SXSW were also cancelled due to the outbreak.
According to the festival, they’re taking steps to ensure staff- and artist shuttles and stage equipment are sanitised.
