COVID-19: Atlantic Music Expo 2020 officially canceled – organization

Praia, Jul 24 (Inforpress) – The eighth edition of the Atlantic Music Expo (AME) 2020 has been officially canceled, but the organization has decided to transfer artists and programming this year to April 2021, the organization said Thursday.

This international event, which was previously scheduled for April 13 to 16, 2020, in Praia, was initially postponed following the Government’s decision to suspend until June 30 “the international events held in Cabo Verde that gather high numbers of participants from countries with COVID-19 ”as a preventive measure for the spread of COVID-19.

At the time of the postponement announcement, according to the same source, the COVID-19 was still an external reality, as “Cabo Verde had not declared a state of emergency, there were no cases and, worldwide, there was hope that it would be a relatively temporary situation.”

“After four months, the uncertainties remain, the scientific community seeks solutions to fight the virus and, meanwhile, the professional community seeks ways to live and produce in the new normal”, said the organization on its page on social networks.
