onScene is cancelled :(
While in our region the infection numbers are really low and it would be quite safe to do the party, in the end it’s not sustainable to do the event.
Germany is far behind and completely messed up both vaccinations and testing. By Easter weekend, after four months probably less than 10% of the German population will be vaccinated.
Also the current lock-down is supposed to end just days before Easter, which even having a permit would mean we potentially would have to cancel last minute while people more or less are already sitting in their cars/planes/trains.
Long story short: It was worth trying. We still believe that even with the chance having been low, it was the right thing not to give up on Easter Weekend 2021 early.
So, another Easter where you can’t physically party with your friends. It’s a pain, but we’ll make it.
On a positive Note: Underground Conference 11 is going to definitely happen in July, we got all the necessary permits and stuff is booked. As this is an outside event, managing infection risk obviously is a whole lot easier. Also we can use the hundreds of Corona test kits and masks we had bought for onScene ;)
An announcement on the party is coming soon.
Many of the onScene registered visitors have been to UC, but others don’t. If you wanna see if this could be an alternative for you, check out last years’ info page:
Also, we have just released a video of the Opening Ceremony of last year’s Underground Conference, which is worth checking out:
So, Easter Weekend will be the last time this year where staying on your Sofa is acceptable. (Yeah, sorry for the UC Spam ;)
