Sámi Easter Festival 2020 is canceled
Following a recommendation from the Institute of Public Health and the Kautokeino senior consultant doctor has decided to cancel all major events in Kautokeino due the risk of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) . This means that the Sámi Easter Festival’s event on April 8 – April 12, 2020 will be canceled.
The festival has a responsibility in the national arena to limit the transmission of the Coronavirus. Of course, we listen to the orders and advice given by national and local health authorities. The concerns of artists, audiences, volunteers and everyone involved come first and foremost – nobody should get sick in connection with the events of the Sami Easter festival.
Artists and staff were informed of the decision today, immediately after the decision was made.
It will also have consequences for suppliers who are now continuously informed.
We look at the possibilities of holding the Sámi Grand Prix 2020 at a later date and will come back with information on this when we know more.
We want to thank for a great understanding among the population of the village, volunteers, staff, financiers, partners, suppliers and the public who make this festival the most important arena for Sami art, culture, traditional joik and new Sami music.
