When will Music Festivals Happen?
Music festivals are the ultimate festival of our generation. The gatherings filled with good vibes and great music have become a place where we can escape reality and the everyday hardships that we face in life. But, have you ever thought when these massive music festivals will happen in the wake of COVID-19? Here we have compiled a list of music festivals and concerts that may happen in 2021.
Music Festivals Likely to Take Place in 2021
The cancellation of festivals like Coachella and Glastonbury has cast doubt on the return of festivals in 2021. However, ample live music concerts have still been scheduled for late summer and fall.
Bonnaroo music festival that is usually held in June, has been planned to happen in early May in Tennessee. While the Riot Fest and AfterShock are scheduled for the tail end of the year, Chicago’s Pitchfork Music Festival will go ahead in September.
The Lollapalooza Paris is going to take place on 17th and 18th July 2021 after a year off. Belgium’s Tomorrowland has also been moved to late August and early September.
In the UK, the Isle of Wight festival will begin on September 16 and end on September 19. London’s number one urban music festival, The Wireless Festival, is also seemingly going to happen in July.
Moreover, the Longitude festival of Ireland has been announced to take place from 2-4 July 2021. And one of the country’s biggest parties, Electric Picnic will also happen in the first week of September.
What Changes are Expected in the Festivals
Faced with the possibility of missing out on the opportunity to attend festivals with our faces sprinkled with glitter and accentuated with cool sunglasses for the second year running, we are curious to know what changes we will see in the festivals that are given green light. Though we are closer to returning to normal, the use of face masks and limited capacity at massive festivals are likely to continue.
Besides, the worldwide roll out of COVID-19 vaccination is the key to getting good times back. Allowing big get-togethers too early will only lead to further lockdowns that will again make our lives miserable. So, we think it is going to be a long time for live music festivals to look like they used to be in 2019 as mass gatherings will reduce the effect of vaccination.
