Lahti Fringe Festival will take a year off

Ihmisiä Lahden Kauppatorilla.

Last year for the fourth time arranged festival will not participate in the Nordic Fringe Network global artist call.

The international art event Lahti Fringe Festival will not be organized by City of Lahti this year. The event has suffered from the restrictions and uncertainty that is caused by the global Covid-19 pandemic.

Since 2018, Lahti Fringe Festival has gathered a vast amount of different art genres both from Finland and abroad. The event has presented artists from multiple countries including Australia, China, United States, and many countries from different parts of Europe. Because of Covid-19, the event has been organized with special arrangements, and in 2020 the festival had to cancel all international shows.

The Lahti Fringe Festival team will inform later about the future of the festival.
