An all-day festival which was set to bring garage-rock bands and fans from all over the UK to York this weekend has fallen victim to the coronavirus outbreak.

Sadly Pizzafest, scheduled for this coming Saturday at York Fulford Arms, has been cancelled.

A statement from curator Dan Gott, from Snakerattlers, said: “Unfortunately, we’ve had to cancel Pizzafest this coming weekend due to the current Covid-19 situation.

“All the bands on the line-up will be playing at another Pizzafest in the future, when things have calmed down.

“We suggest you keep your ticket for the next Pizzafest, as it will still be valid.

“All being well, that will be in June and the date will be announced shortly.

“Ticket purchasers are obviously entitled to a refund, however, which can be made by emailing:
