As you know by now, the ATG is very intensely planning our highly anticipated 80th Anniversary Festival celebration to be held in Los Angeles California August 5-9, 2020, with the DoubleTree by Hilton as our home base, while some of the concerts will also be in two nearby spectacular venues - the Aratani Theatre and Zipper Hall.
That being said and considering the current concerns with the CoVid-19 situation globally, we in America fully anticipate that the aggressive measures taken by our government today (3/17/2020) to put the CoVid-19 virus in check very quickly will enable the ATG to be fully functional and ready for a very memorable event in Los Angeles in August. Even though the USA is not yet nearly as affected as most other nations, we know that the entire world is responding to this virus in kind, and therefore expect that we will be past the worst part of this very soon.
However, because of these unprecedented and rapid developments, we at the ATG suggest that you do not make any travel or flight plans currently, especially since many airlines are not offering flight insurance, which could potentially cause you to forfeit your ticket investments. Let's all take a breath and wait for 2-3 weeks to determine how this will all unfold and at that time we will come back to you with continued updates, or sooner if we know something that was not apparent today.
Please stay safe and healthy and now more than ever music becomes a great escape to take our minds off of these events. Many blessings to you all from the ATG.
