Dear friends and shareholders of the Sierre Blues Festival,
For nearly 2 months now, we have been preparing ourselves for this plan B, namely the postponement of the 12th edition to June 2021. Since the latest development and political decisions, this postponement is now in force !
As we are sure you can imagine, we are all extremely sad that we won’t be able to meet you all in Sierre for our event, just like for all sporting, cultural and social events or family reunions. The situation is painful for everyone.
Health takes precedence over all other considerations and the global health crisis related to Covid-19 puts everything back into perspective. As organizers, our priority is to guarantee your safety, that of the volunteers, the artists and all those involved in the organization of the Sierre Blues Festival.
The result of such a postponement is having important financial repercussions even though our organization remains a small event compared to the larger ones such as Montreux Jazz or Paleo in Switzerland. We are putting our efforts into mitigating its impact.
We are currently working with the artists programmed in 2020, including ZUCCHERO, to have them present in 2021 and therefore the tickets and subscriptions purchased remain valid for 2021. So keep your tickets in a safe place and make sure you take part in this 12th edition from 10th to 12th June 2021.
To conclude, we would like to pass on a huge thank you to you dear friends, dear public, volunteers, artists, partners, providers, sponsors and all the people and entities involved in the festival, for your words of support and for your trust as well. We hope that the spirit of solidarity encountered in the face of this crisis will continue for a long time to come.
So, in the spirit of future beautiful reunions, while thanking all the people who are at the front every day during this dramatic period, we are happy to say “see you soon”.
Take care of yourself and your loved ones.
Org. Committee of the Sierre Blues Festival
