A post shared by SXSW (@sxsw) on reports that SXSW, the massive music and film festival, one of the biggest in the world, is the latest event to get canceled.

The coronavirus has instilled fear in the world and major companies, talent and media personnel had been pulling out of the event in recent days.

Now, for the first time in 34 years, SXSW has been canceled entirely.

Austin, Texas was set to play host to SXSW next week starting March 13, with the festival set to run through March 22. Netflix, Apple, Amazon, Facebook and other major companies had backed out of the event recently. That, coupled with the recommendation of public health advisors led to the decision to cancel the event. Austin mayor Steve Adler, during a press conference, made the announcement.

Here’s what he had to say.

Based on the recommendation of our public health officer and director of public health, and after consultation with the city manager, I’ve gone ahead and declared a local disaster in the city, and associated with that, have issued an order that effectively cancels SXSW.
