Organisers of All Points East in London have become the latest to cancel their plans for 2020.

“Following the daily escalating developments in the COVID 19 pandemic, we have made the difficult decision that All Points East 2020 will be cancelled,” a statement reads. “The decision was made following a constant review of recent Government actions and statements, and after further consultation with key partners and agencies it is clear that we are unable to guarantee the safety and well being of those working at and attending the event.”

“Alongside the now enforced period of social isolation, the Government has stated that emergency services will not be able to support major events. Furthermore, the projected strain that is being placed on the NHS will push this institution and its staff to levels never seen before. It is therefore inconceivable for us to add any distraction to these organisations. We are fortunate to work alongside the emergency services at our events and want to take this opportunity to express our company’s heartfelt gratitude and admiration for all their professionalism and dedication in tackling this crisis.”

There’s very little remaining of the UK summer festival season after Glastonbury became the biggest name to cancel earlier this month.
