Update – International music festivals planned in Malta have been cancelled by the organisers of the mentioned parties following an uproar in the island against their organisation.
The organisers have blamed the increase in number of cases on the island, which in recent days saw a spike, due to another music festival weekend long party which happened on the island two weekends ago.
The organisation of events created a major resistance, urged petitions and also saw trade unions representing the medical professionals to issue directives of industrial action by doctors.
Large-scale music festivals set to attract thousands of international clubbers to the island this summer are to be cancelled amid coronavirus concerns, The Times of Malta reports.
It is understood that four events will not go ahead after an agreement between organisers, the government and the tourism authority.
