“We did everything that we could to try to run the event as planned, but ultimately, maintaining social distancing is neither feasible at, nor in the spirit of, the interactive and community nature of Rezzed. It is the community that makes Rezzed so special and it is our duty to make sure that your safety comes first.”

“Thank you for all the messages we have received over these last few weeks, this feedback has been invaluable in helping us determine these next steps.
