Dear EFABE fans,

Unfortunately but understandably, the Dutch government has decided earlier today that all events with more than 100 visitors are prohibited from taking place in the next two weeks, if not longer. As a result, we are left with no choice but to cancel EFABE 2020.
We understand that this is a big disappointment for you, as well as for the artists and volunteers. We hope that despite the bad news, we can all take this as encouragement to take care of our own health and that of the people around us.
We ask you to give us time to think through the consequences of the cancellation and how to deal with this setback. After the weekend we will get back to you.
For those of you who booked a room at the EFABE hotel, you can cancel your reservation free of charge. To do this, we ask you to contact the hotel directly :

11 March 2020

The last few days we got a lot of questions about EFABE in combination with Corona. Currently we don’t see any medical reason to cancel or postpone EFABE due to the coronavirus. In this matter we just follow the advises of the Dutch National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (

We keep a close eye on how it develops and we will decide Friday afternoon on postponing EFABE 2020 or not. For now, we are looking forward to the event on 26 – 30 March 2020!
