regret to announce, as endorsed by the EBU as well as the DBF, the postponement
of the European Blues Challenge 2020, due to the uncertainty regarding the
status of the measures to be taken in the battle against Covid-19. It is unwise
to persevere in continuing the Challenge. Also, several countries have informed
the EBU that they will abstain from participating, either as precautionary
measure or because of the restrictions imposed by their respective governments.
We emphasize that the Challenge is only postponed, not cancelled. We hope that
the developments in the Covid-19-situation will make it possible to convey to
all an alternate date before the summer holidays. Tickets bought will remain
valid and the value transferred to the new date.
We will keep you informed.
We deeply regret being forced to take this step, but the Covid-19-pandemic
confronts us with an extraordinary situation with far-reaching consequences.
With the blues in mind and full regards, The Board of the Blues in Zaanstad Foundation
