FestivalFinder.eu still alive!
We always say, In Europe, the arts are just a festival away, and encourage audiences to discover and enrich themselves by attending.
Now many festivals have had to press ‘pause’. It is only a pause, though, and before very long they will press ‘reset’. They will be back.
In the meantime we invite audiences to continue using festivalfinder.eu's News section to discover our arts festivals, their programmes and activities. Many will be streaming special events and performances from their archives online, so visit their websites even if the festival dates are no longer relevant. The post-corona times will be different, we know that. But we also know that festivals, as they always have been, are wonderful platforms for bringing people together; for reconciliation, joy and happiness. Festivals will go on celebrating the arts and our communities.
The amazing diversity of artistic experiences on offer - the scale and ambition of programmes - all over the continent is the reason festivalfinder.eu exists; to bring that richness to audiences and to demonstrate its vitality as well to all arts lovers, politicians, officials and planners.

Festivals in Lockdown: Italy
Many festivals were supposed to run in March 2020 and were cancelled or postponed because of the coronavirus. Since Italy seems to have been hit the worst, we want to express our solidarity to our Italian friends and highlight some festivals which we think, deserve a little extra love.
Sofie & Carlo episode 10
Somewhere in Europe a festival is underway. Every day brings a crisis. Somehow the big people in charge only ever arrive at the end. Only the two young interns, Sofie and Carlo, stand between triumph and disaster.
