Dixie Jazz Fest, which was supposed to start tonight in Veliko Tarnovo, has been cancelled and will not take place. This is necessary due to the decision of the regional crisis headquarters, which made its recommendations to the city government to cancel all mass events by July 31.
The decision of the regional crisis headquarters to cancel mass events was dictated by the increased number of people infected with COVID-19 in the country and in particular in the district. We remind you that the events “Arbanassi Summer Music”, the classical concerts of Trapezitsa and the International Festival of Military Orchestras have already dropped out of this year’s traditional summer program. The Ancient Festival “Nike – the game and the victory” will not be held in the ancient city of Nikopolis ad Istrum. The organizers of all other planned upcoming events also reserve the right to make changes.
