Festivals are severely hit by the crisis. Festivals are either postponed or cancelled; some are developing new formats. All remain committed to support the artists and the show-business workers the best they can. By moving online, streaming live concerts, broadcasting archive recordings, festivals are developing new ways of programming and presenting music now and in the near future. Some formats and thinking will stay with festivals on the longer term.
