Classical:NEXT 2020 postponed
COVID-19 pandemic has forced the postponement of Classical:NEXT music industry event, scheduled to take place in Rotterdam on 18-21 May 2020.
After the announcement of new measures to stop the spread of the virus in the Netherlands, including a regulation of cancelling any gatherings of more than 100 people, the organisers of Classical:NEXT have released a statement:
'Much hard work has gone into putting together the 2020 edition and so, it is with a heavy heart that we make this decision. It is only because of Classical:NEXT taking place annually that we are able to continue and bring the international art music community together every year. We will look to find the best solutions for moving forward.
'All 2020 registrations will remain valid for the next edition in 2021 and we will keep you informed to the best of our ability. We ask you for your patience and your understanding as we continue to iron out the path forward. We anticipate being able to announce exact dates and location soon.'
The AMC maintains its commitment to the partnership with SOUNDS AUSTRALIA that enables us to undertake these international market development activities in support of Australian artists. We will keep you informed about future arrangement for both Jazzahead and Classical:NEXT.
