HRH AOR 8 (12-15 March) and HAMMERFEST XII (19-22 March) have both been postponed in the wake of the current health situation. 

Both festival websites have been updated with a postponement message.

A statement from Chic Festivals includes the following:

“With the recent outbreak of Coronavirus across Europe, we have been monitoring the situation daily. We do feel it will get worse before it gets better, however with such a large percentage of customers and bands flying in from all over Europe, some from countries which have seen the number of cases recently escalate dramatically, we feel that customers, bands and staff safety & wellbeing are our primary concern”.

All other HRH events this year and next are scheduled to run as normal.
