ORGANIZED WITH FINANCIAL PARTNERSHIP OF OLOMOUC REGION AND STATUTORY CITY PROSTEJOV
UNDER THE AUSPICES OF THE GOVERNOR OF THE OLOMOUC REGION LADISLAV OKLEŠTĚK
Hello Celts, Vikings, Slavs and Germans, musicians, dancers, soundmen, technical support, friends.
We’ve been hoping for months, we’re on the lookout, we’re looking for information, but it’s a dismal fight and handball with a beans against the wall. We have all the “pros and cons” on the table and the situation is unfortunately very overweight on one side, I don’t have to emphasize which one… Even today, it is not at all clear under what conditions summer festivals could take place, there are still so many negatives, ambiguities and question marks, that we can no longer procrastinate with the decision and wait for a miracle. Our boots are aalready full of water in this time and the preparation would have to go at full speed now to get everything done which is not possible.
The diagnosis is that Celtic Night 2021 is unfortunately moving to 2022 (JULY 22-23 – 2022)
No one (even not the government) is able to give a responsible opinion on many questions: – how many people will be allowed to participate (we need at least 1500 to sustain it financially) the forecasts are 300 – 500 or 500-1000, but even that is not certain. – we don’t currently have a single private sponsor (they all have economic problems and can’t support culture) – What about the entrance? Younger people will not be vaccinated… Do people have to have tests? Will they make them themselves before arrival or do they have to be tested by the organizer before entry? (unfortunately we are not even able to do that) – How many people would be willing to come under such conditions and walk around the CN, possibly in a masks or respirators? – Unknown conditions for foreign artists !! European coronapass this is still a mess, authorities say it will only be for travel, but will not apply to concerts and culture – it is said that all EU member states have to determine the conditions themselves – and how about a possible quarantine for foreign participants? Nobody gives the answers. – testing of all organizers and employees of the CN ??? We are not able to pay that and which of the people will pay for it themselves so that they can work at KN for 2 days? – we have negative feedback from a lot of people that they would still not go anywhere under such conditions… – other special hygienic measures and their observance in the Žralok campsite and possible inspections – no one knows if the situation will worsen with all the new mutations…. – THE MOST IMPORTANT THING: to do a Celtic night in such conditions that is not about joy and will be bad and full of stress for everyone? This is no longer about enthusiasm, which I’ve always had enough of… todays reality is relentless.
As a basis for the CN 2022 program (JULY 22-23 – 2022), we want to keep this year’s program
– perhaps with minor adjustments that we will not avoid. Before we can give an official opinion on the CN website and on FB, I need an answer from everyone if they agree with the transfer of this year’s program (which is basically last year’s) and preliminarily promise to participate in CN 2022.
Let’s stick together and hope that this is really the last year that has so limited us in our normal lives.
Tom Somr and organizational team of CN.
