Youth Song & Dance Festival won't take place in 2020

Take note – story published 6 years and 1 month ago

The 17th Youth Song & Dance Festival, which was slated for 2020, will not take place that year, said the committee responsible for organizing the festival on March 23.

This is because the Mežaparks Open-Air stage will not be finished by summer 2020.

In order to move the festival to another year, a law that says it takes place every five years will have to be amended. The Education Ministry is to decide when the festival will take place instead. 

About 200,000 people attended the previous Youth Song & Dance Festival in 2015
