UPFEST 2020 - Coronavirus Update

 

As the extent of the impact of Coronavirus continues to progress, we are looking at contingency plans should we have to postpone. The event is international in its nature and the safety of our visitors and artists is absolutely paramount.

The event is currently planned to happen on 30th May to 1st June 2020 and we are looking to options with Bristol City Council to move to the end of the summer should the situation require. We are working to secure our venues, license and work with our suppliers to look at the best alternate dates. We have also begun to consult with our international artist community to see that – if needed – they are able to attend an alternative date.

We are all aware that the advice given is issued on a dynamic basis and we are operating in a challenging time for events. At the moment we are working towards the original May date and the event will continue as planned if it is safe to do so.

Anyone contributing to our crowdfunder, we massively appreciate the support, even more so at this really difficult time.

Huge thanks to everyone who is supporting the festival, our team, artists and event professionals,

bigHUGs, now wash your hands

Steve, Emma and the Upfest crew.
