Zouk Heat 2020: Postponed

worst case scenario: covid-19

Dear Zouk Heat 2020 Community,

As of this yesterday afternoon, March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) officially declared COVID-19 as a global pandemic.  As of last night, President Trump has banned all travel from Europe to the US for the next 30 days which is a direct impact on Zouk Heat 2020 as many of our artists either live in Europe or would have been traveling from/through Europe during the 30-day travel ban.  The state of MD is under a State of Emergency & group events have been banned. 

These have all been VERY recent game changers and have unfortunately put us into worst case scenario:  Event Postponement. We will be postponing Zouk Heat 2020 & rescheduling the date.  We will confirm a new date once we get a better idea of how long it will take manage the pandemic as we don’t want attendees to be in the same boat again.  



1. THE HOTEL:  Please contact the hotel directly & immediately to cancel your reservations.  We are well within the window to cancel without any penalty.

2. TRAVEL: Most airlines are allowing rescheduling and/or cancellations without penalty.  Please check with your individual airline.  We are undergoing the same rescheduling/cancellations for our artists’ flights. 

3. PASSES:  Per our Health & Safety policies posted on our website's Health & Safety page, you can read what measures were planned & already in place under these worst case scenario circumstances per yesterday’s announcements from our public officials & global health authorities.  


We are eager to reschedule and confirm a new date, however, we need to see how this plays out for a bit so that we’re not in the same boat again.  

We’ll keep everyone informed via:
