San Francisco’s Outside Lands announced Wednesday that its 2020 festival has been canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, organizers also revealed that the festival will return in 2021 with a lineup led by Tame Impala, Lizzo, the Strokes and Tyler, the Creator.

The decision to cancel this year’s Outside Lands was made after discussions between organizers, city officials and state and local health officials. Festivalgoers who purchased tickets for the 2020 fest can either seek a refund or push their tickets to the 2021 event, which will also feature Vampire Weekend, J Balvin, the 1975, Beach House, Angel Olsen and many more.

Early bird tickets for the 2021 Outside Lands — running August 6th to 8th, 2021 — go on sale through the festival’s website beginning June 25th at 10 a.m. PST.

“We are thrilled for the festival to be coming back in 2021. There’s been a lot of bad news out there with regard to COVID-19 and we want to give people something to look forward to,” said Another Planet Entertainment’s Allen Scott said in a statement. “We’re hopeful that in sharing our excitement about the future of the festival and next year’s lineup, that it provides some much-needed positivity for our fans and community.”

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced the cancellation of every late-spring and summer music festival, including the New Orleans Jazz Fest, Lollapalooza, Boston Calling, Ultra Music and SXSW. Coachella also recently canceled this year’s fest after initially postponing from April to October 2020. Only Bonnaroo, which shifted from mid-June to late-September, currently remains on the schedule.
