Cruise to the Edge and Seaprog 2020 Festivals Postponed

The worldwide outbreak of the novel coronavirus has started to produce casualties in the music world, and festivals are not immune. We've had word that both the Cruise to the Edge (originally slated for March 27 - April 1) and Seaprog (originally June 5-7) have been postponed to later dates, with those dates to be announced.

by Jon Davis, Published 2020-03-17

From Cruise to the Edge:

Our team has been working diligently in handling this situation and we are pleased to announce that we have come to an unprecedented agreement with NCL to postpone Cruise to the Edge and move to another date, which will be determined in the weeks to come. This will give us the ability to preserve this wonderful cruise we have in store for you until the Coronavirus Pandemic has stabilized around the world. We want to thank our partner NCL for negotiating in good faith with us to make this the great event that we all look forward to each year.

From Seaprog:

It is with great regret that we have to announce the indefinite postponement of this year’s Seaprog festival. With the current situation regarding the coronavirus, it has become apparent that staging an event of this size in early June is no longer possible. It is our intention to put together an event later in the year, though obviously we can’t yet specify dates or any details at this time. We are also working on producing a series of live streaming performances by artists who would have been appearing at our events.
