These are unprecedented times that we are living in. While the welfare of human life unequivocally comes first and foremost, the live events industry is also being hit dramatically.
As more and more events are rescheduled, postponed or cancelled, the implications on promoters, artists, staff and partners continue to mount up. If these persist, then many event organisers and promoters will unfortunately not emerge on the other side.
And then there’s the fans, like yourself. Those who may have purchased tickets, booked accommodation and sorted travel months ago with immense excitement. The fear of having your plans torn up is a horrible feeling.
But amongst all this, a sense of normality can bring huge relief to many and is a welcome distraction from the rolling news coverage.
It is with that in mind that we are striving to continue to support the live events industry during this testing time. Alongside our partners at Festicket, we have launched our new FlexTicket, which gives festival-goers free cancellation on festival bookings through our Festicket partner website, and we will continue to provide our entertaining music and festival coverage across our online magazine, email and social channels.
All this will be done from our employees’ homes. We recently took the step to temporarily shut our offices, so all our staff are now working remotely from their homes, with many doing so alongside their furry friends.
The forthcoming weeks and months will be difficult for everyone, but if we stand together and support one another we will come out stronger on the other side.
In the meantime however, stay safe and look out for each other.
Hopefully see you at a festival, club or gig soon.
