The corona virus, actually COVID-19, has reached the music. Not that we are aware of a composition with “Covid-19”, but there are several cancellations of music events. Besides the Brawo in Stuttgart, the Musikmesse Frankfurt, as well as the Prolight- and Sound have been cancelled or postponed.
According to Messe Frankfurt, the “increased distribution of Covid-19 in Europe requires a re-evaluation of the situation in close cooperation with the Frankfurt City Health Department. The aim is to avoid that participants of the fair come from risk areas and visit the fair ill. Since these fair participants may also have contracted Covid-19, a health check is necessary to prevent the further spread of infection. This is an essential part of the infectiological risk assessment. The necessary implementation cannot be realised by Messe Frankfurt. In addition, there are increasing travel restrictions that make it more difficult for potential visitors and exhibitors alike to attend the fair.”
The new date will be announced by Messe Frankfurt.
