Annual one-day NYC festival globalFEST was set to return in 2022 on January 16 at Webster Hall, but with the current Omicron surge, they've decided to cancel. Here's globalFEST's statement:
Live shows are a big part of the mission of globalFEST - the magic and community are undeniable! But what is most essential to our work is the joy of discovering music and culture from around the globe - to bring the world to the eyes and ears of curious listeners.
We are heartbroken to announce the cancellation of globalFEST’s flagship event, which was to take place on January 16, 2022 at Webster Hall. Out of an abundance of caution for the current upward trends in COVID cases with the highly transmissible Omicron variant, and the nature of live concerts, we have made this decision for the health and safety of our artists, audiences and staff. Ticket holders will be automatically refunded by Webster Hall to the original payment method used for ticket purchase. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
