The Bologna Jazz Festival 2020 postpones all activities related to concerts and says goodbye to fans and spectators.
The press release:
“The provisions approved by the Government to combat the Covid emergency, combined with our sense of responsibility towards spectators and workers, put the live shows of an edition that had already started on standby, with all the necessary measures to health protection.
Individual and collective protection measures that in recent months have shown how the sector has been among the safest in Italy, thanks to the commitment of managers and organizers, not recording particular problems or infectious clusters.
But it is said to stop concerts all over Italy and we suspend them, for the moment, too, while nullifying the work of many who had worked hard for an edition of the Festival that was difficult to achieve, in times of pandemic.
During the lockdown, the activity of the Bologna Jazz Festival never stopped, offering a long series of streaming performances that had an extraordinary response from the public.
During the summer, the Bologna Jazz Festival continued to produce concerts, creating the jazz schedule of the Dumbo space, producing the tour of the Tower Jazz Composers Orchestra and the record of the Emilia-Romagna Jazz Orchestra.
And even this time, while the exhibitions have stopped, the planned educational and training initiatives of the “Massimo Mutti” Project do not stop, in addition to the entire exhibition area dedicated to illustration, which has already been set up on the streets and on buses in Bologna.
This is a bad time for the world of culture and entertainment. It is a bad time for the country.
But we will also recover live performances by returning with a larger and more beautiful edition, full of concerts, parallel events and surprises for members and fans of this wonderful musical expression.
Anyone who has purchased a ticket for one of the three events in the theater or the entire season ticket will be refunded. ”
