Sorry to be that guy but... we aren’t under threat of cancellation because of Coronavirus, are we? Apparently the U.K. government is content to keep public summer events running, what’s the latest from Spain?

Too soon to talk. The epidemy might escalate even further, at that point I doubt any event will take place, honestly. On the other hand, I believe we are just victims of media terrorism to some extent, so there is no reason at the moment to be so pessimistic about the situation (and I'm talking as an Italian who lives in the biggest city of the most hit region)

Festivals and shows have began being cancelled in Asia, suppose anything can happen in four months for better or worse.

They aren't cancelling concerts here for now + festivals take place in open spaces, the real problem would be concerts in closed spaces. I'm not worried at all! + coronavirus apparently doesn't survive high temperatures so...

Is anyone else staying at NYX Hotel?

What's the best way of getting to the festival, it's only like 20min drive from the hotel so thinking of just doing Uber but I heard there were shuttles or something?

Good hotel, i live near.

If this year the underground will be open, you must go in line 8. All years have buses to return to plaza castilla, 20 min walking of your hotel.

Concerts are being cancelled in Madrid now, since there has been an increase in the number of cases... I don't think that we'll be like this in July, but keep in mind that, if the situation doesn't get better in a couple of months, they'll probably cancel the festival. I'll keep you all informed!!

Other Festivals are talking rescheduling and postponements with SXSW in America stating no refunds as we are looking to reschedule. 

I can not see how any festival with bands falling into slots between tours and other shows can "reschedule" certainly not with the same line up. 

So biggest concern - Mad cool is cancelled as rescheduling doesn't seem an option

Biggest plus  -  They reschedule and Mumford and sons cant make it

Me too, but they said yesterday that it's still happening. I guess it depends on what happens next month...

This virus is spreading like crazy, they can say its still happening but no promises can be made.

This morning it seemed straightforward as most countries appear to be trying to contain things as much as possible, and start bringing infections down within weeks. If that worked, then we'd be fine.

Now though, the UK Govt are aiming to push the peak for infections into June/July. However, they also seem to be suggesting that large events aren't that dangerous, and that they wouldn't mind if a lot of young people got Coronavirus as their symptoms are likely to be mild and it helps with herd immunity.

Given the different approaches, in England and Wales we might end up being encouraged to go to festivals here, but be banned from travelling overseas!

Spanish government is acting quickly, at least i'm a bit positive now. No one is going to school/university, and Madrid will probably be all closed starting next week to avoid more infections (like, only supermarkets, drug stores and places like that will be open, just like Italy). I can't see this situation going forward up to July, that would be insane...

If we look at China we can see that once the state introduces a lock down the virus does slow down so I'd be very surprised if it wasnt under control by July! Positive thoughts!

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office has advised Britons against all but essential travel to Madrid and some other regions of Spain.
 

I know it’s too early to confirm but not looking good for MC.

Hey all if it doesn't happen, it doesn't happen.

No band or festival is worth 1 life. 

I hope everyone on this page stays safe,  you're a good bunch! 

If it doesn't happen, maybe see you all in 2021  - if they get planning permission Haha

Now that Glastonbury has cancelled I wouldn't be surprised if the rest follow.

Ah well. Stuck at home with less to look forward to ...

The reason why Glastonbury cancelled its edition is:06336755-C88D-44A3-A4D1-0C6DA8E4D8CA.jpeg.b4455e1f073c6da2e82b10d875ae02ec.jpeg

Mad Cool wouldn't have that issue. Like, I think it doesn't look good (because the situation is worsening and controlling this virus is more important than these festivals, of course), but Mad Cool (and other festivals) don't need to work on the field as much as Glastonbury. That's why they haven't cancelled anything... yet.

Spanish Government said that this situation would go on for months, from 2 to 4. Best case scenario? 2 months, and Mad Cool would still be happening. 4 months and it wouldn't.

In all due respect, when people are travelling all around europe with flights and hotels booked, it would be a much better situation if the festivals said earlier rather than later that this year will not go ahead

With the way the whole world is right now, i personally think that anyone who believes festivals will go ahead is VERY VERY optimistic. 

Obviously most festivals can say tickets carry over to next year if you want them to,

Mad cool cant even say that because they have not got plans form the authorities to hold the festival next year. 

Prepare project shit storm............................ Lets hope they handle this situation better than they handled their bookings!

I can see there's some difference - but you'd assume they've taken the decision with more information.

If artists are pulling out/postponing/cancelling then all the festivals will fall like dominoes. You're not likely to get Taylor Swift turning up for half a festival run.
