As you all know, due to the current global health crisis that we are living, the Government of Spain has extended the state of alarm. That means that we have been forced to cancel all the Brunch –In the City planned for May. So the 3 events we had planned for May 10, 17 and 24 are official cancelled.
We had put all our enthusiasm to make this Brunch –In the City Barcelona 2020 season the greatest one of our history. So taking that decision has been very difficult for us, but everyone’s health must be the top priority at the moment.
Despite all the hard work and our efforts, the circumstances have only allowed us to do 1 event in 2020, and with the May events, there are 6 that we have canceled. This means that our situation as a small company is becoming complicated.
We are aware of the gravity of the current situation, and we absolutely don’t want to draw attention away from those who are suffering from a risky situation: the sick people and the people who take care for them. We would especially like to express our deep appreciation to all the healthcare staff. In this battle, they are the true heroes.
However, following the optimistic spirit of our festival, we remain hopeful of making Brunch at summer.
Keep your ticket: #SaveYourFestival
For a small company like us, the cancellation of 6 events puts us in a difficult situation. But the fact that you keep your ticket for another Brunch in the future means a lot. Obviously, we request this action only from those who feel their situation allows it.
It may not seem like much, but with this you will be helping to save the scene, helping workers to fight to keep alive a festival that is already part of everyone. It is the small gestures that achieve great things.

A COMMON CHALLENGE
Although we face an uncertain future, we are committed to doing everything in our power so that we can continue have a place for us to celebrate
#salvemosnuestrosfestivales #salvemoslaelectronica #salvemoslafiesta
Finally, we would like to join in unison with Resident Advisor in a call to #saveourscene. This is a decisive moment, with music suffering a great blow and needing to preserve its continued existence. It is time to save music! You can read the manifesto in Resident Advisor website.
On behalf of the entire Brunch team, we want to insist that at this time we must focus on the sick and the people that care for them, and we stand in solidarity with all those affected.
Thank you sincerely for your support and understanding.
