Lollapalooza organizers have announced that the annual festival’s lineup reveal has been delayed due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.
The festival is still scheduled to run from July 30th through August 2nd at Chicago’s Grant Park, but with America currently locked in the coronavirus outbreak the future of Lollapalooza 2020 is very much uncertain.
“For now, we are at home, taking care of each other, listening to music, and dreaming of summertime in Chicago,” festival organizers said in a tweeted statement. “While we stay in close contact with local officials, we are well underway with planning for Lolla to take place as soon as it’s safe for us all to be together in Grant Park.”
