Another music industry event was impacted by the new coronavirus (2019-nCoV) outbreak that has been affecting several countries. Organizers of Jazzahead!, a music festival focusing on jazz that takes places annually in German, announced today, March 20, the cancellation of the 2020 edition of the event.
