from the board of Reykjavik Bear
Dear friends of Reykjavík Bear,
It is with a heavy heart that we are announcing the Cancellation of this year‘s Reykjavik Bear event, which was due to take place 3-6 September, 2020.
Please know that this has been done out of an abundance of care and that we have explored every possible means to continue with this year‘s event. However, the Government of Iceland has decided to impose more comprehensive border-screening measures as of 19 August. All arriving travellers will have to choose between a 14-day quarantine and a double testing procedure along with a quarantine for 4-5 days. Considering these new guidelines, the existing restrictions on gatherings and social distancing rules, it has become clear that we won‘t be able to deliver the experience that we want you to enjoy. It really wouldn‘t be safe or responsible to do so in light of the current situation.
We will now put all our energy into making sure we can welcome you in Reykjavík on 2-5 September, 2021.
If you hold an Event Pass or have made purchases in our online shop, you will receive an email with further information. Tickets for Reykjavík Bear 2021 will be available starting February.
We would like to thank you for your support leading up to this year‘s event, and for your patience during this time as we reached this difficult decision.
Stay safe and healthy.
The Reykjavík Bear Team
