SINGAPORE - Attendees of the One Love Asia Festival 2020 in Singapore will have to wait to jam with their favourite artists, as the event has been postponed to November in THE light of the escalating coronavirus situation.
Event organiser, IMC Live Global, has announced that the new dates of the event will be on Nov 7 and Nov 8 at the Bayfront Event Space. The event was initially scheduled for May 1 and 2.
In a postponement notice, IMC Live Global said the decision was "made with the safety of our fans, artistes and staff as our first priority", and that it will continue to "act in accordance with the advice and regulations of the local government authorities".
