The XLSIOR Mykonos Festival, originally scheduled take place August 19 to 26, has officially been cancelled, for reasons explained in this July 15 notice from event organizers. XLSIOR is one of the world’s biggest annual gay festivals, and for the past 10 years has been the biggest multi-day party event to take place on Mykonos each summer.
Covid-19 safety measures, news and special announcements
On September 1, Scorpios (top image) and Nammos (bottom photo) were ordered to stay closed for 48 hours after officials conducted surprise inspections of both beach clubs to check for compliance with the Greek government’s special coronavirus safety measures. Scorpios was subsequently allowed to re-open on September 4; however, Nammos was ordered to stay shut for a further 10 days. However, Nammos decided to close for the season on September 7.
Porta Bar, pictured in the top photo, posted the above notice on its social media accounts on August 23 to explain that it will remain closed until stringent government coronavirus safety measures have ended. The current regulations do not allow customers to stand in bars, and the limited availability for physically-distanced seating arrangements in small bars and clubs, like Porta, makes it extremely challenging if not nearly impossible for businesses to operate.
This is a notice Skandinavian Bar posted on its social media accounts to advise of mask wearing requirements that would take effect on August 21
Negrita Bar on the Little Venice seafront posted this notice to social media on Thursday August 13
Alemagou shared this message on its Instagram account on August 9 as an update to a previous notice explaining why the club is temporarily closed. On August 6, Greek media reported that 6 more of Alemagou’s staff have since tested positive for the coronavirus, so the club must stay closed while all employees complete an isolation period.
