Europe’s iconic and best-known Jazz festival canceled due to pandemic for the first time since its start in 1967.

The Swiss Government was gradually easing protective measures, but it is still impossible to hold such a big event because of the physical distancing.

The program was all set to start from July 3 to July 18, and the lineup included Lionel Richie, Brittany Howard, Lenny Kravitz, and Black Pumas.

The organizers give a word that the program will be held next year with the same lineup, which will take place from July 2 to July 17, 2021.

It is the first time the festival gets canceled in its 53 years long run.

The program usually takes place in the Swiss town on the shores of Lake Geneva, and the fans have to wait for more to witness their “Rolls-Royce of Festivals.”
