The Lucerne Festival, which cancelled all events a month ago, has found a loophole to enable it to give some performances in late August, probably most of them in the open air.
Here’s what they are telling us:
In addition to introducing new digital formats that are scheduled to launch in June, Lucerne Festival is in the process of developing a concept for a new, short festival to be held in the second half of August. This festival will be based on a central theme and will present events in the KKL Lucerne, on the Europaplatz, and at various other locations in the City of Lucerne. We anticipate that the concerts we have planned will take place with an audience. We will adhere to the specifications of the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health and to the protection scheme that has been developed in accordance with the KKL Luzern. We expect to communicate further details by the end of June.
