The upcoming Punkt festival in Birmingham will not take place.
The festival statement signalling a postponement indicates that the cancellation is ''due to the ongoing developments surrounding the coronavirus.'' Postponing the acclaimed remix festival, which first began in Norway, the organisers add, ''has not been an easy decision to make, however, because of concerns around public safety and international travel, we are looking at rescheduling the event.''
''If you are one of the people who has already booked tickets for Punkt Birmingham you have two options. Firstly, you can contact the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire Box Office for a refund. Alternatively you can contact them now and ask for your ticket to be transferred to the new date when it is confirmed.''
