Aurora 2020 Food and Music Fest cancelled over COVID-19

Three days before the Aurora 2020 Food and Music Festival, its organizer Epic Events, has called off the two-day event amid the increasing cases of COVID-19 in the country.

The Clark Development Corporation (CDC) on Monday stopped all public events in the Clark Freeport Zone following the directive of President Rodrigo Duterte who issued a ‘public health emergency’ in the wake of coronavirus transmissions.

The Aurora 2020 Food and Music Festival was scheduled on March 13 and 14, 2020 at the sprawling Clark Global City.

Epic Events was earlier allowed by the CDC to proceed with the festival amid the ongoing threat of the coronavirus which already infected 24 Filipinos.

On Monday evening, Epic Events said it will refer the CDC memo circular cancelling all public events inside the freeport zone to its lawyer but later announced that it cancelled the festival.

“For the safety of everyone, LGU mandate, and the request of thousands of ticket holders to move the date in light of the coronavirus epidemic, we have decided to reschedule the event on April 2020. Same bands, same venue just a different date for everyone’s safety. Hold on to your tickets! All tickets will still be valid on rescheduled dates. New bands will also be added! We hope for your understanding,” the Epic Events said.

However, ticket holders had been requesting for a refund while others were selling theirs at a lower price.
