25th to 27th September 2020 in the Music Youth Hostel Wernigerode
Guests of Honor 2020 are: TJ & Mitchell Burnside-Clapp (USA)
Dear fellow (and potential) filkers,
after lots of deliberation, results from the poll and quite some humming and hawing I have come to the conclusion that it will be more reasonable to cancel FilkCONtinental â€“ for the first time in its more than 20 years of history. This has not been an easy decision.
The local Corona regulations are changing on a nearly daily basis. We simply cannot do any reasonable planning under those conditions.
Most of the usual attendes have decided not to come as long as there is no real protection noreffective mediaction against CoVID-19.
Due to current research, singin in closed rooms bears the highest risk of spreading the disease. And as CoVID-19 probably will be around for quite some time to come without medication or vaccine we fully can understand this decision.
We now are planning a virtual version of FilkCONtinental this autumn. We will announce details as soon as we know more.
And our Guests of Honour already have agreed to join us at the next attempt hand hardly can wait to fly over the pond for a great convention.
We will announce the dates for a new shot at FilkCONtinental as soon as we have found a decision.
Looking forward to seeing you all again in person, alive and kickinâ€˜!
A special con for all bards of the future, minstrels of the past and musicians of the present. A con for music-loving ScienceFiction and Fantasy fans with a liking for folky sound, handmade music, but also for parodies or catchy rhythms. Workshops about music (and sometimes even more unusual subjects) are likely to catch your attention. Be surprised! A con to singalong or to just listen and watch.

Only 72 days left to FilkCONtinental!
