The coronavirus outbreak has thrown entertainment events in Hollywood in disarray. That goes for every major event that's happening worldwide. Events involving large crowds and international travel have all taken a backseat due to the spread of the COVID-19 respiratory illness. There are over 90,000 confirmed cases of coronavirus primarily in China. While the number of confirmed cases in the United States has risen to at least 130. To prevent the spread of the virus, a handful of concerts, festivals, and film shoots have been canceled, postponed, or changed. One of the most notable events that got canceled was SXSW in Austin. The South by Southwest (SXSW) cultural festival was canceled just a week before opening. Austin Mayor Steve Adler declared a state of emergency in the city due to the global health concern brought about by the coronavirus. That's a huge blow to the economy of Austin seeming as the event brings in more than 350 million USD. But you could say that the cancelation was inevitable with all the big-name participants pulling out due to worries about the virus. If you're a fan of music festivals, then we've got bad news for you. Two of the biggest EDM festivals have already canceled. That's too bad for everybody who already had their Ultra Miami 2020 tickets. Not to mention, Tomorrowland's lineup was something to look forward to. Plus, don't even get us started with the latest movie releases. If you want to know more, we've made a list of the upcoming Hollywood events that have been canceled due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Check them out right here!
SXSW has officially announced that it's going to cancel its tech and music conference scheduled from March 13th to the 22nd in Austin Texas. The announcement comes after Austin Mayor Steve Adler issued an order that effectively cancels SXSW due to the coronavirus. SXSW is a prominent event for the tech, music, and media industries to gather and learn from each other. Over the years, the event became less nerdy and more mainstream and serves as an exhibition space for big-time companies.
This is sad news for all the "Mission: Impossible" fans out there. Paramount Pictures shut down production on the upcoming "Mission: Impossible 7" on February 26 which was filming in Venice, Italy at the time. The studio issued an announcement that cited the Venetian government's memo to stop public gatherings. Tom Cruise would return as secret agent Ethan Hunt for the seventh installment of the storied franchise on July 23, 2021, with an 8th installment to be released on August 5, 2022.
The producers of the James Bond movie franchise said that the release of the latest film in the long-running spy franchise will be delayed until November of 2020. The announcement was made in response to the worldwide threat of the coronavirus. "No Time to Die," was originally scheduled to release in April 2020. It's the 25th entry in the Bond franchise and will be Daniel Craig's fifth and final appearance as the debonair secret agent.
Ultra Miami has officially been canceled following a statement issued by the festival. It cited Florida Governer's declaration of a public health emergency after the outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). The Ultra Music Festival was supposed to run from the 20th to the 22nd of March at the city's Bayfront Park. That's too bad given that it's one of the biggest outdoor electronic music fests that take place during March and now fans are going to have to wait a whole year before they can enjoy it again.
For everyone who was looking forward to the Tomorrowland Music Festival in France, you'll have to wait until after the coronavirus crisis. Organizers of the EDM fest announced that they have canceled the 2020 winter edition of Tomorrowland due to the outbreak of COVID-19. It was supposed to run from March 14th until the 21st at the French alpine ski resort of Alpe d’Huez Grand Domaine Ski. EDM artists like Armin van Buuren, Afrojack, and Steve Aoki were part of the lineup of the postponed event.
