Indonesia has many international music festivals; one of which is the Prambanan Jazz Festival. The Covid-19 pandemic has not stopped the activities that jazz lovers in the world are waiting for being held in a different version, namely virtually. The Prambanan Jazz Virtual Festival 2020 will be held for 2 days, namely on 31 October and 1 November 2020. However, the Prambanan Jazz Virtual Festival 2020 is still held directly from Prambanan Temple.
Even though previously it was not attended by a live audience, this year's Prambanan Jazz Festival continues to follow the health protocols as recommended by the Indonesian government. The organizer provides a rapid test for the crew and all artists who will enliven the concert. Initially, the Prambanan Jazz Virtual Festival 2020 invited international musicians. Even so, the festival also presents Indonesian musicians. On the first day, Tulus, Fourtwnty, Isyana Sarasvati, Joko In Berlin, Pusakata, and Tompi will be present.
New hopes and new experiences are the tagline pinned at this year's Prambanan Jazz Festival. At the Prambanan Jazz Virtual Festival 2020, for the first time, it collaborates with musicians from Yogyakarta who are members of TheEverydayBand to arrange and compose the lyrics for the song "Ke Prambanan Jazz Lagi". It is an effort to continue to promote Yogyakarta and a hope to be able to see Prambanan Jazz live again in the future.
