CORONAVIRUS UPDATE FROM THE FESTIVAL TEAM

The Festival team was looking forward to unveiling today the line-up of its 54th edition. But given the exceptional circumstances all are currently facing, this announcement is postponed, and a new date will be communicated as soon as possible. Concerned by the seriousness of the situation and mindful of its evolution, the Festival management is closely assessing developments in conjunction with both the authorities and those involved in the organisation of the event. To date, the holding of the Festival, from 3 to 18 July 2020, is not compromised. The Festival team is therefore continuing its work, in hope and humility, to enable this year’s Festival to happen under the best possible conditions.

m-101

The entire Festival team would like to thank everyone who is contributing, be it directly or indirectly, to the collective effort to combat the pandemic. It also expresses its support and solidarity with those in the cultural sector who are experiencing difficulties during this time.
