Well, I have expected this festival since few weeks ago, and I couldn’t wait to be there soon. But yes, as we all expected, all the festival and event for crowded people are being cancelled due to corona crisis. Germany is not exceptional, of course.
This festival is held in indoor and outdoor, however, it decided to be cancelled, as it is anyway gathering people up into certain spots.
Detailed reason is as below..
- Messe Frankfurt, in close cooperation with the Frankfurt Health Authority, has decided to cancel Luminale at short notice. It was to be held in Frankfurt and Offenbach from 12 to 15 March.
- Due to the current requirements of the health authorities to prohibit major events with more than 1,000 participants, Messe Frankfurt, as organiser of Luminale, decided to cancel the Light Festival at short notice. The volatile situation and the dynamic spread of SARS-CoV-2, combined with the recommendation of the Robert Koch Institute to also take a critical view of events with well below 1,000 participants, led to this new assessment. Messe Frankfurt deeply regrets this short-term decision, but out of responsibility for the health of participants and visitors, no other decision was possible.
I am quite sad about it, but as all the German people say, yes it is better to be so. We have to put little bit of our effort to reduce infected cases of Coronavirus. People, Let’s overcome the crisis together.
Sad greeting from Germany!
