<УКРАЇНСЬКА НИЖЧЕ>

Dear friends of KDF.

Weeks of February flew fast, and we have been doing our best and prepare for the event. But it is clear that Russian political pressure and provocations in mass media continue to scale up now. Several major airlines have cancelled or suspended their flights from Europe to Ukraine, and the Ukrainian government cannot guarantee safety due to overall force majeure. This makes it impossible for us to bring most of our artists and international guests.

As a result, we regretfully have to make the tough decision to cancel the March edition. We are deeply sorry for such a late news, as we have done everything in terms of preparation from our side, as we always do for you. Unfortunately, these new travel and safety limitations are beyond our control. Your lives and wellbeing are our priority we do not compromise about.

Of course we considered an option of still holding the event in smaller scale. But with all our devotion and track record, we believe you deserve only the best and full experience! We appreciate your loyalty, as many of you have been coming to Kyiv every year, and this was supposed to be the 5th Anniversary.

Months of preparations and lots of work done - this breaks our hearts...

That's why let us all save our energy, keep calm and come dance just as planned - next year! Kyiv Dance Fest 2023 will be held on the 9-12 of March, so save the dates in your calendars! And keep an eye on our next event this year - Sense Fest 2022. Meanwhile, we ask for your patience and support while we process the transfers.

All passes and passes with accommodation will be automatically transferred to KDF 2023. You do not need to take any actions. If you cannot join us for KDF 2023, we like to offer you the option to exchange your KDF 2023 pass for either the Sense Fest in September 2022 or 2023 . For ticket exchange to Sense Fest please email kyivdancefestival@gmail.com and make sure you include your ticket information.

Sincerely yours, KDF team

Шановні друзі KDF.

Тижні лютого пролетіли дуже швидко, за цей час ми робили все можливе та готувались до події. Але очевидно, що російський політичний тиск і провокації в ЗМІ зараз продовжують посилюватися. Декілька великих авіакомпаній скасували/призупинили свої рейси з Європи в Україну, український уряд не може гарантувати нашу безпеку через загальні форс-мажорні обставини. Це унеможливлює приїзд більшості наших артистів та міжнародних гостей.

У результаті ми, на жаль, змушені прийняти важке рішення скасувати березневий фестиваль. Нам дуже прикро за те, що ми так пізно інформуємо вас, адже ми зробили все для підготовки зі свого боку, як і завжди. На жаль, ці нові обмеження на подорожі та загроза безпеці знаходяться поза нашим контролем.

Ваше життя, безпека та благополуччя є нашим пріоритетом, з яким ми не йдемо на компроміси. При всій нашій відданості та послужному списку, ми віримо, що ви заслуговуєте лише найкращого та повного досвіду! Ми цінуємо вашу лояльність, адже багато хто з вас щороку приїжджає до Києва. Цей фестиваль мав бути приурочений до 5-річчя.

Місяці підготовки та багато виконаної роботи – це розбиває наші серця...

Тому давайте всі збережемо ту нашу енергію, збережемо спокій та прийдемо танцювати наступного року! Kyiv Dance Fest 2023 відбудеться 9-12 березня, тому зберігайте дати у своїх календарях! І слідкуйте за нашою наступною подією цього року – Sense Fest 2022.

Тим часом ми просимо вашого терпіння та підтримки під час обробки ваших пасів. Повністю усі паси без виключення, в тому числі з проживанням, будуть автоматично перенесені на KDF 2023. Ніяких дій з вашого боку робити не потрібно. Якщо ви не можете приєднатися до нас на KDF 2023, ми хотіли б запропонувати вам можливість обміняти ваш квиток на Sense Fest у вересні 2022 або 2023 року. Для обміну квитків на Sense Fest, будь ласка, напишіть на kyivdancefestival@gmail.com і обов’язково вкажіть інформацію про квиток.

Щиро Ваша, Команда KDF
