Volkswagen South Africa postpones VIVOnation Festival due to Coronavirus outbreak

Volkswagen South Africa has taken the decision to postpone the third instalment of VIVOnation(4 – 5 April 2020), due to health concerns around the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

“With thousands of people expected to attend the two-day festival, the safety and health of VIVOnation attendees, artists and everyone working on the festival, is of the highest concern forVolkswagen South Africa. This cautious decision is in line with guidelines from the World Health Organisation and relevant public health recommendations,” says Martina Biene, Head of Volkswagen Brand in South Africa.

VIVOnation 2020 is now scheduled to take place later in the year, with specific dates to be communicated in due course.

The production team is working with artists to secure the same line-up, and the VIVOnation experience will remain the exact same format of four music stages, a Vivo Bula Boot market and unique driving experiences. All tickets will be valid for the new dates. Any customers who wish to get a full refund can do so on the Howler website.
