Film Music Festival in Poland Postpones Gala

The world is in a strange place as we all do our part to stop the spread of the corona virus. Entertainment industries has paused filming at this time—including The Witcher—after actor Kristofer Hivju tested positive for COIVD-19. It comes as no surprise that the live concert featuring music from The Witcher has been postponed in Poland.

Krakow Film Music Festival has announced that due to safety concerns, they have postponed their events until 2021. The TV Series Gala—which would have occurred in May—was to have featured live music from some of the most popular shows.

No dates have been set just yet, but the festival is working hard to reorganize it for next year. It is a shame fans won’t be able to experience live music, but a completely reasonable choice. Even we'd love to experience the festivities in person, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have some fun until then!

As seen on Amazon, the CD version of the soundtrack will be available on April 10th for $24.99. If vinyl is your thing, composer Belousova has mentioned a vinyl release at some point.
