BLACK FOREST VOICES WEB.STIVAL 2020
The effects of the Corona virus on health, social, social, cultural and economic life worldwide since the beginning of this year require an adjustment of Black Forest Voices. We are currently working feverishly on an alternative for a Black Forest Voices Festival 2020, which cannot take place in the originally planned form due to loss of revenue from ticketing and sponsoring.
We, the makers of the festival, were highly motivated to show our presence on site this year with a minimal edition of the festival. Out of conviction for the Black Forest Voices concept and out of solidarity with our friend, colleague and inventor of the BFV Festival Tobias Hug, who died at the beginning of this year. Not least and in this sense also for strategic reasons that it is beneficial for future BFV statements not to let the connection to the place, to the a-cappella scene and to the supporters, sponsors and sponsors be broken.
In the meantime, however, we have to realize that it will not be possible. For this reason, we have now decided to switch completely to an online version: the Black Forest Voices Web.stival. The BFV Web.stival (also June 18 - 21, 2020) presents - like its analogue original - local and international artists in streaming concerts and live zoom workshops, talks with activated chat function, documentation to click on and presentations in various online -Formats from and in living and study rooms of artists, lecturers, participants and viewers, sponsors, partners and friends of Black Forest Voices - worldwide.
