Unless a vaccine is already being publicly rolled out by August, Wacken or similar won't be permitted. And that's not going to happen.

Exactly. Even if a cure was discovered today, it would take over 200 days (can't remember the exact figure, 263 maybe?) to manufacture a batch of vaccines ready for distribution. This info comes from somebody I know who works in the manufacturing of vaccines. Not sure if that timeframe is strictly limited to her own company's abilities, but she seems fairly certain that we're not gonna get spiked anytime soon.

Wacken officially cancelled now.
Yeah...
Germany put a ban on all large social gatherings till at least the 31st August.
And they seem to be dealing with it the best in EU at the moment.

I can only presume most, if not all, other EU countries will follow the suit.

God is an Astronaut have rescheduled their Apr 18 date to the end of August. Silver linings, as my wedding was supposed to be this Saturday. I'm skeptical things will even be safe for gigs in August but we'll see.

What's happening about your wedding? I'm in the events and wedding equipment/furniture business and I'm so worried there will be no business til next year

Postponed til December. I know other couples who postponed to July and August and that's way too soon I reckon. December might even be too soon. We'll see.

Wonder when Belsonic and Ramnestien will make cancellations official. Be a bit of extra cash coming, minus Booking fees of course.

Are bands offering refunds or rescheduling gigs?
Festivals look to be giving out rescheduled dates.

I presume if a date is rescheduled you can get a refund if the rescheduled date doesnt suit?

I highly doubt that any decent sized festivals will be going ahead this year. Maybe at the very end of August or September.
I was chatting with my brother earlier and he said the owner of the pub he goes to said it'll probably be September before the pubs are up and running properly again.

Im not sure that will be the case with all organizers when hearing about some terms and conditions.
Also some hotels seem to be offering vouchers instead of refunds.

Some  3rd party sites want money up front so that's where it could become sticky.
Think air b and b want half up front and the other half on arrival?
