Hello comrades,

This is a message to let you know that Hot!Hot!Hot! Festival 2020 is taking a hiatus while we seriously contemplate how best to perform our civil and global duty in this unprecedented pandemic.

Scheduled for mid-April, the Festival will not go ahead as planned.

We are looking into the options for a delivery of an alternative, responsive program led by artists and distributed online; and a focus on development of future works.

The safety and wellbeing of our staff, artists and extended community has driven this decision. We acknowledge that the devastating impact of COVID-19 on the sector will be long-felt and Hot!Hot!Hot! is committed to supporting artists and providing a platform for their work through this time.

Take care, and distance,
