Normally, we would already be under a lot of stress booking flights and trains, writing band texts, reserving the last sound materials, checking construction sites in the old town, producing new bar deco, revising info stands, finalising bookings for hotel beds, updating the master plans, ordering T-shirts and festival ribbons, placing catering stands and reveling in anticipation.
… if the virus would not have such a grip on us.
The planning uncertainty is currently so great on all levels that we see no other option than to cancel Buskers Bern 2021. It's hard for us, since we hoped until the very end that we would be able to hold the festival with a concept that was more or less in line with Corona.
We are very much looking forward to celebrating with you next year from August 11 – 13, 2022 in the alleys of the old town.
Take care, see you soon!
Buskers Bern is the complete antithesis of Corona: lots of people dancing close together, drinking a beer in the alleys and artists coming from all continents to Berne. Three days of colours in Bern’s alleys.
