The Salsa Spring Festival is an institution in the world of dance that you have helped establish with your support over the last 11 years.
However, everything that happened in the last two months in Greece and around the world due to the COVID-19 pandemic, has inevitably affected the planning and implementation of such an event. For this reason, it was deemed necessary to move the festival dates from 14-17 May 2020 to 27-30 August 2020, believing that the conditions at that time would allow the festival to be held at the highest standards, as it has been all these years.
On May 30 2020, the Greek Government officially announced, through the Government Gazette (Page 2084, 5/30/2020), the special health protocols by which tourism companies must operate. Based on this new information, it is unfortunately impossible to hold the festival and we are obliged to push the dates of the festival to 27-30 May 2021.
All bookings remain valid for the new dates, while the current legal framework (PNP with Government Gazette A 84 / 13.4.2020) gives each participant the following options:
1) In case the participant wishes to cancel their participation for the new festival dates, they will receive from the tourist office Helios Travel a credit note of the same amount they have paid which will be valid for 18 months from its issuance.
2) In case the participant has received the credit note but does not wish to use it within the period of 18 months, they have the right to request from Helios Travel the refund of the total amount after the expiration date of their credit note.
Also, each participant can transfer their booking to another person by informing the organization about the new name of the beneficiary.
