Musical pleasures of late autumn

Since 1988, the Global Music Center's Etnosoi! festival has offered music lovers a world of new acquaintances, information, joy and experiences. We’re doing all we can to ensure that this autumn is no exception. Naturally, we’re taking the coronavirus situation very seriously and together with responsible concert venues we’re doing our utmost so that the concert situations will be safe for the performers, staff and audiences.

In these exceptional circumstances, we will ensure public safety by, for instance, only selling tickets for 50% of the venues’ normal capacity. Therefore it’s best to buy to tickets as soon as possible. Even if we are forced to make changes to the programme, we intend to offer some Etnosoi! programme on each planned concert day. If we are obliged to make last-minute cancellations of foreign performers, we will try to reschedule the concerts for next year, with tickets remaining valid for the new date. We will also offer other alternatives, including ticket refunds.

Let’s behave responsibly and together do all we can so that we can fill the available seats and enjoy live Etnosoi! concerts in person.

Here’s wishing all friends of Etnosoi! a beautiful late summer and a pleasant autumn!
