JAB 2020 Cancelled but Goes Online

Several days had passed until we heard the final decision made by the Ministry of Culture and the Government of Russia about the 9th Saint Petersburg International Cultural Forum 2020. Due to the coronavirus resurgence across Russia and in Saint Petersburg, the 9th Cultural Forum has been cancelled and so has the 4th International Forum Fest Jazz Across Borders. The safety of our guests and participants is the main priority of the organizers. Unfortunately, this year it seems impossible to hold the Forum in-person without the further spread of COVID-19. We extend our sincere gratitude to everyone who expressed interest in our Forum, helped to organize and popularize it. All those who have registered and paid for the participation will be reimbursed within  10 working days. We, the JAB 2020 Organizing Committe, have done a lot of work and now are planning to tailor the business program for the online format. We will inform you about the details soon, stay tuned!
