The City of Dudelange has announced its decision to cancel the 2020 edition of Fête de la Musique in Dudelange in light of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.
Faced with the evolution of coronavirus in Luxembourg and following the government's announcement of measures to curb the spread of the disease, the City of Dudelange has decided to cancel this year's Fête de la Musique, originally scheduled for 20 June, and to reschedule it to 19 June 2021. This decision has been made to protect the health of the population and of festival visitors (around 25,000 in 2019), in line with the official measures taken by the City of Dudelange and the government.
The City of Dudelange has assured that all confirmed artists have been contacted following this decision and the majority have already confirmed their participation in the 2021 edition. Other artists will be performing at the CCRD opderschmelz in 2021 due to this year's fully booked event calendar.
