Tragically Cancelled: 2020 Fest Jazz Châteauneuf-du-Faou

It is with huge regret that Trevor Stent needed to request Jazz&Jazz to post this announcement.

Just to tell you all that we have decided to cancel Fest Jazz 2020 in Brittany. The situation is just too uncertain to risk it.  All the other festivals in July in the region have been cancelled and even if the festival was allowed to take place, they will almost certainly insist on everyone wearing masks and standing 2m apart, which is not exactly the kind of atmosphere we want!
