Munich today called off its Oktoberfest, attended through September and October by six million swillers and swiggers from all over the world. The shutdown will cost the city around one billion Euros in revenues.
We are starting to hear from artists – singers especially – whose engagements for the early part of next season have been withdrawn by orchestras, opera houses and other performing organisations.
If you have been affected, let us know.
It’s looking extremely unlikely that anyone’s September will go ahead as planned.
