Latvia, like most of the countries in the world, is in the midst of a serious health crisis caused by Covid-19. At the moment it is not possible to say exactly when the pandemic will end.
That's why it is impossible to predict whether and how the current crisis will affect the 20th anniversary of "Rigas Ritmi Festival" in 2020. We can only follow the situation closely and respect all recommendations from the authorities. We are continuing our work and moving forward with Rigas Ritmi Festival for July 1-4, 2020, with a hope that crisis will be over in the next three months.
Festival team would like to thank everyone who contributes to the collective efforts to restrict the pandemic. We express our support and solidarity for the cultural sector organizations and individuals who are facing great difficulties at this time. We thank our reliable partners and sponsors who are with us at this time!
