The Brussels festival will be postponed until November.

Listen! Festival has announced it will be postponing its 2020 edition following recommendations issued by Belgium’s public health authorities. The festival will now take place from 10-15 November.

In a press release, the Listen! team said “during the current coronavirus outbreak, there is no doubt in our minds that we all need to be united, first and foremost, for the safety and health of everyone”, adding that they “strongly recommend everyone to thoroughly follow the recommendations issued by the public health officials.”

Tickets purchased for the festival’s March edition will be valid for the new dates.

The news follows cancellations and postponements throughout the music industry, with the likes of Coachella and Berghain also suspending and cancelling events in light of the coronavirus pandemic.
