Cinemas, theatres and other cultural venues closed their doors in March this year. Very quickly, cultural programmes were transferred online to an increased degree, and also outdoors, under the sun and stars – when it was made possible. Careful monitoring of instructions and limitations given by competent institutions, and also of colours in the coronavirus traffic-light system when guests were coming from abroad, was joined by regular checks of the weather forecast. The habit of farmers and organisers of summer festivals has turned into a constant concern and duty for everybody seeking to realise in the changed circumstances at least part of their cultural programme, which had been planed at a time when nobody could possibly imagine what 2020 had in store for us.
