Share the love and pain
- Helen van der Jagt
Since earlier this week, having active social media channels has been hard. It is heartbreaking to read all the posts about cancelled and postponed festivals, concerts, and shows.
While we were geared up and ready to start the new festival season, it has been so painful to see that events like Echos & Merveilles – Festival Médiéval Fantastique
and Mead & Greed Festival 2020
cancel this year’s events, but also to hear about the fear for Elfia
‘s festival at the end of April.
Just as painful is seeing our friends of Sunfire
, Rapalje Celtic Folk Music
, The Royal Spuds
and so many more having to cancel or move shows. Even worse, thinking about our Italian friends of EMIAN PaganFolk Music
and The SIDH
, they are litterally locked up in their country. All these artists are faced with weeks of uncertainty.
Not to mention all the people working in this business who are losing weeks of salary due to something as seemingly small as a virus.
Even though we are faced with similar issues, we at CeltCast want all of our friends to know that we think about you all and are there with you all step by step. Let us all hope the issues with this virus are solved quickly and that we can refocus on the joy and happiness music, concerts and festivals bring.
Let’s put our effort in this together, and let us hope that this is just a bumpy start to an awesome season!
