Organisers of the Cape Town International Jazz Festival have postponed the event due to the risk posed by the coronavirus.

The festival's director, Billy Domingo, says the event could possibly be rescheduled for later this year depending on when the Covid-19 pandemic will peak.

On Friday, the festival postponed the event for the foreseeable future as the world grapples with Covid-19.

In a tweet, organisers said the decision was taken as a precautionary public health measure.

Domingo says his team had to prioritise the health and safety of patrons, performing artists and service providers.

The international event, which sees about 40,000 attendees each year, was scheduled to take place on 27 and 28 March.

It has been a major drawcard on South Africa's social calendar for years.

While Domingo remains adamant that the festival will be rescheduled, he says ticket holders can get their refunds from Computicket.

Everybody has to take this seriously. This is not taken lightly... We're bringing artists in from around the world.

Billy Domingo, Festival Director - Cape Town International Jazz Festival

The decision was painful, but it had to be made.
