The annual Supernova party at Waregem Expo will not be able to take place on Saturday evening. The organizers had, in an emergency, set up a testing village and bought 1,600 self-tests, but their efforts were not enough.
According to the new rules decided on Wednesday by the consultation committee, only nightclubs can give up wearing a mask after a rapid negative test. This event takes place every year. This fall, it was scheduled for November 20, the first day of application of the new measures decided on Wednesday.
“The efforts that we have put in have not been sufficient. Communication with the relevant authorities has always been rather vague and only became clear a few hours ago: Supernova can stand with a mouth mask or not. take place, ”the organization said. The decision was therefore taken to cancel the event, a famous “hangover” and a heavy financial setback for the organizers.
