Flemish culture minister Jan Jambon has agreed with the festival sector to decide by mid-March at the latest whether or not the summer festivals will be organised this year, he told the Flemish parliament on Thursday.
Summer festivals could not take place last year due to the coronavirus crisis. As for this year, Jambon first wants to get a clearer picture of the progress of the vaccination against Covid-19.
“I hope with all my heart that things will be possible again for the festivals that were not possible last year,” Jambon said, “but it is too early for the moment to say more.”
