The 2022 edition of Zodiak's international Side Step Festival will be canceled. The financial risk, created by the big international programme in the current uncertain situation, was in the end estimated to be too high.
New corona restrictions have been been placed on public events, starting from Saturday, December 4. Therefore Zodiak will require the EU corona certificate from the same day onwards.
