Due to the demand of the Danish government and health authority to consider if there might arise a risk of infection at events with less than 1000 people which could give reason to a cancellation of those, we decided to cancel the European song contest for regional and minority languages Liet International 2020 (3-4 April, Gazzværket, Apenrade/Aabenraa).
Together with Aabenraa Live we decided, that the risk of infection for the semi-final on the 3rd of April and the finale on the 4th of April is too big, also in consideration of the expected amount of people (audience, helping hands, artists). At the same time, the participation of approximately 100 foreign artists, who would arrive already from the 31st of March, would be an irresponsible risk.
We are very sorry that we are forced to cancel this event – both for the audience, the artists, our partners and sponsors and our organisers. We were really looking forward to celebrate the 2020-anniversary with this European music festival.
We don’t know yet, if we can arrange Liet International 2020 at a later point in time.
Tickets which are already paid will naturally be reimbursed.
