2020 was the year that we will all remember as the year of Covid and the pandemic, and for live music, it was the “annus horribilis” where everything stopped.
The future of festivals and concerts is still very uncertain, but many organizers are preparing and hope that the shows will resume by the end of 2021.
Will we go back to listening to music and dancing?
This is a question that is certainly not at the top of the thoughts right now
people even if he never abandons them.
Opinions are very different, and some hope that live music will return by Easter, those who think it will return perhaps in the summer, but it could be by the end of the year.
The arrival of the vaccine conveyed some optimism, but it will certainly take some time before the tours can return to normal.
Meanwhile, many organizers of electronic music festivals have planned the dates of their calendar and announce dates, locations, and line up of their 2021 editions.
An act of hope, inspired by passion and the desire to return to normal.
It is like giving a positive impulse to an entire sector with its related activities (hotels, restaurants, transport) which thinks and plans to restart.
