Organizers of Atlas Weekend have announced the postponement of the event for 2021. This was reported on the festival's Facebook page.

The cause of the delay is a coronavirus pandemic that is ongoing in the world. "We cannot put the guests, the team, and the artists of the festival at risk by holding it this summer," the statement said.

However, the organizers have announced the new date for Atlas Weekend 2021: the festival will take place on July 6-11. All tickets purchased for AW2020 will remain valid.

As we reported earlier, non-governmental organization Amnesty International notes the violation of human rights during the imposing of quarantine restriction in the countries of Eastern Europe and Central Asia, particularly, in Ukraine.

“In this difficult time for all countries, the governments try to stop the spread of the virus, implementing different restrictions. While, some restrictions might be justified and necessary, others violate our human rights,” Director of Amnesty International Ukraine Oksana Pokalchuk stated.
