Just a quickie: Muscat Festival 2010 cancelled

Just a quick story here for local fans of the Muscat Festival (of parking really really badly).

"Sultan bin Hamdoun al Harthy, Chairman of Muscat Municipality and head of the Muscat Festival's organising committee, has announced the cancellation of Muscat Festival 2010. In a statement to Oman News Agency, Al Harthy attributed the cancellation to a government decision to limit instances of public gatherings as a preventive measure to combat the spread of H1N1 virus. Al Harthy noted that Muscat Festival, which is growing into a grand annual event, attracts thousands of visitors from different countries. Hence its cancellation in 2010 would ensure the protection of public health and safety".

Whatever will they cancel next?

  1. Sounds like a convenient excuse to have a break from what is presumably months of hard work and stress.

  2. Great news for me, I'll be in Oman on holiday that time of year.

  3. Is the festival actually cancelled?
