Bushfire Festival Cancelled Amid Corona Virus Panic

Published

on

The Bushfire Festival is amongst a growing number of similar events who are cancelling their shows in 2020.

Just days after Coachella announced that they will be postponing their highly anticipated 2020 shindig, where South African DJ Black Coffee had a slot, Bushfire Festival has also announced that this year’s festival, initially slated to took place May 28-30 May, will be postponed until 2021.

The announcement comes amid concerns of the global corona virus spread, which has currently infected 61 South African. With the number expected to rise exponentially in the coming days, South African President Cyril Ramaphosa on Sunday urged the country to avoid gatherings with a number of people exceeding 100.

In a press statement, Bushfire Festival affirmed that health, safety and security take utmost priority.

“As a socially conscious and conscientious festival, MTN Bushfire prioritises the health, safety and security of the Eswatini community, the festival staff and guests. MTN Bushfire believes that this is the responsible decision to make in recognition of these extraordinary circumstances”, the festival expressed in the statement. 
 
MTN Bushfire will #KeepTheFireBurning! Therefore, festival tickets and camping passes that have already been purchased will still be valid in 2021.
The festival has also entered into negotiations with all other travel and accommodation partners to ensure that guests can defer their bookings to 2021 festival dates. Festival goers are encouraged to contact the relevant travel and accommodation providers to make these arrangements. 
 
To those who can’t make it to the 14th Edition of the festival in 2021, information on refunds for festival tickets will be made available on 27 March, 2020. The process, terms and conditions will be announced then.
 
Over the past week, the festival has been in consultation with key Eswatini government stakeholders, including the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Tourism and Environmental Affairs and the Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Trade. MTN Bushfire has also been in talks with MTN Eswatini, sponsors, partners and other relevant parties.
The Team acknowledges the massive economic and cultural impact that the festival has for local creatives and traders, and the region as a whole. However, these discussions and the ultimate decision to postpone this year’s festival have been guided by a collective priority for the safety of the people of Eswatini, festival guests and staff members. 
 
This has been an emotional time for the dedicated and hardworking team at MTN Bushfire, and for everyone who has committed to making the MTN Bushfire experience yet another successful and memorable one.
 
The team will continue to fulfil the festival’s unwavering commitment towards creating a safe space that celebrates diversity, encourages social inclusion and amplifies our call to action to positive social change, #BRINGYOURFIRE. The 14th Edition of the festival is going to be an even more explosive and electrifying experience!
QuenchSA will be keeping you posted on what’s next.
