Amersfoort Jazz 2020 postponed

Due to the global Coronavirus crisis the festival Amersfoort Jazz, the Sena Performers International Jazz Laureate Festival and the World Jazz Conference will be postponed. Festival director Alexander Beets says: “Between May 14 and 17 we were expecting musicians and professionals from more than 25 countries around the world and at this point we find it irresponsible to continue the event at the set dates in May. We are in close contact with the municipality to see if we can find and alternative weekend later this year, but they get numerous requests also from other events which want to postpone. If we get a new date, we propose to copy the festival schedule as originally planned from Thursday till Sunday to the new dates, i.e. transfer the original timeframe to then mentioned weekend. This would mean, all concert slots, conference meetings, dinners and other scheduled events will be held in the same timeframe as they have been fixed for now. We are very sorry for all efforts and costs which are already made by artists, professionals and organizations. We honestly think no one could have foreseen such a major global crisis on such a short timeframe and we think it is in the interest of everyone to make this decision now. We hope that the impact of the virus on the world will be less by the time summer starts and that we will be able to let the festival take place on new dates this year.”
