In the face of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, World of Tango Festival will not take place as planned September 18–20.
“We want to guarantee a safe festival for both the audience and the artists. Getting international artists and audiences to Finland in September is uncertain. A big part of the festival audience comes from abroad and international artists are the highlights of the event.
Within the current constraints, it is not possible to organize our festival. We are planning a livestream release for September and will inform more about it during the summer. We hope that in 2021 we are able to organize the festival again, as planned”, festival director Simón Riestra says.
In 2021, the 14th World of Tango Festival takes place September 17-19.
