The Windhoek Municipality has, due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, agreed to the postponement of the 2020 //Ae //Gams Festival to the end of October 2021. In a press release the Municipality explained that the festival was initially scheduled to take place at the end of October 2020 but, following careful consideration, the council felt it was more important to the health and safety of residents and visitors of Windhoek and will instead host online artistic and cultural expression activations to build momentum leading up to the main event in 2021.
