Coronavirus claimed music festival season, and regardless of festival organizers’ virtual events making up for the year in waiting, music lovers have been plotting their returns.
The Manchester, Tenn.-based Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival joins the long list of live music events rescheduled for 2021 today (June 25). The San Franciso, Calif.-based Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival also announced the cancellation of this year’s three-day celebration yesterday (June 24) with Lizzo, Tame Impala and The Strokes set to headline next year.
Promoter Goldenvoice pushed back both the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival and Stagecoach Festival in Indio, Calif. from April 2020 to October to now April 2021, a full calendar year behind due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It remains unclear whether Coachella 2020 headliners Travis Scott, Frank Ocean and Rage Against the Machine will top next year’s bill, but according to Billboard’s poll published on June 11, future festivalgoers hope for Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift to make their way to the Coachella Stage.
