The bad news first: After a thorough assessment of the situation, the Migros Culture Percentage is following the instructions of the authorities and has decided today, Friday, 6 March, that the festival in Zurich with more than 6,000 expected visitors will unfortunately not take place in two weeks. Due to the current situation and development, it is not possible to hold the festival in its original form.
Streaming festival "m4music 2.0”
m4music should, nevertheless, take place. Despite the cancellation of the festival, the spirit of discovery of the m4music team remains unbroken: m4music will bring festival atmosphere to the screens in a live stream – with content for the audience and the Swiss music scene.
Philipp Schnyder, Festival Director of m4music, explains: "Our festival has not only been committed to the audience in more than 20 editions – we have also established ourselves as an integral part of the Swiss pop music agenda. Therefore, it is clear to us that m4music should not be cancelled without replacement. The whole team is currently working at full speed on our digital festival. We look forward to announcing the details in the next few days."
Already purchased tickets and festival passes for the 23rd edition of m4music will be refunded by Migros Culture Percentage. The processing is carried out by the ticket provider Starticket. More information can be found on the Starticket website.
