The long-awaited Offline hotel takeover in the Radisson Blu Resort in St Julian’s has been cancelled due to a sudden spike in COVID-19 cases related to a previous takeover in the same hotel.

“The events at the hotel are now confirmed to be cancelled,” the organisers of Offline said today after speculation over whether the event would go ahead.

“Whoever wants to stay at the hotel anyway for the weekend can do so (obviously you will be refunded for the events and you will get a discounted rate on the rooms, please discuss this at check-in),” organisers advised.

They asked all would-be attendees to give them time to reply to messages, and that they’ll update fans as more information comes in.

The cancellation comes after six new cases of COVID-19 were confirmed to be related to a hotel takeover organised by G7 and Sound Salon in the same hotel the previous week. Health authorities are urging everyone who attended that takeover to get swabbed for the virus.

The Radisson Blu Resort has since issued a statement clarifying their decision:

“The Radisson Blu Resort St. Julian’s, out of an abundance of caution, has decided to cancel parties due to take place at the hotel tonight and tomorrow night. The parties were to be organized and hosted by third party specialists in the field, and the hotel was to serve as the venue under hire,” they said.
“The hotel’s management continues to place the health and safety of guests and staff alike foremost in any consideration and continues to abide stringently to all health protocols including a focus on enhanced cleaning, PPE and other regulations as directed by the local authorities,” they continued.
“The hotel’s protocols have again been audited by the local authorities, as recently as this morning. Notwithstanding that everything was found to be in order, the hotel’s management has decided to err on the side of caution and cancel this weekend’s bookings for the gatherings that were due to take place on its grounds,” they ended. “The hotel remains in operation.”
