Ultra in Miami was canceled due to the virus
About to come back and admit how incredibly wrong I was.
I still think Lolla is so far out that it’s pretty safe, or 2020 is really gonna be a dark year
Sxsw has also been cancelled
With what’s about to be announced and a ban likely in effect till may 1st I don’t see us getting a lineup or ticket sales till may
What is about to be announced?
For Illinois and Chicago effective immediately
All pro sporting events to either be cancelled or played with no fans until may 1st. events with 250 or more people canceled or postponed till may 1st. Events 1000 plus to be cancelled immediately. schools will stay open but will be watched day in and day out. High school sports will prolly be cancelled as well
What is the source on that? Haven't seen it anywhere else yet.
Press conference right now on tv with the mayor and governor. Started at 5
You should update this
Think we get a lineup this month?
I highly doubt it
I seriously doubt it. It would not be a good look to try to announce a huge festival right now.
We won’t get anything till may I think
By the way, our governor said this today. All Large Summer Events Should Be Canceled, Pritzker Says Amid Coronavirus Pandemic
I'm conflicted. I can't see us under these strict restrictions all the way until August, but my theory is they don't want this to jump back up above the capacity of our hospitals like it is now, so they will restrict all big events but allow other gatherings (i.e. hanging with friends, smaller venues open, bars and restaurants open, etc.)
That’s my assumption too. Festivals bring in too many people from other places. I don’t think we’ll see any this year.
Just on a purely curious level, if this ends up cancelled, I would be interested in seeing the lineup. I can't see them postponing the same lineup until next year (would be nearly impossible to get a lot of the acts), but I would be down to see who would have been there this year.
I agree I'd love to see it too, but I really doubt they ever release it. Maybe it leaks though
That’s my assumption, too. We can’t have people traveling to be in large groups like a festival this summer. There is the possibility of there being more outbreaks all summer.
Grant Park Music Festival cancels 2020 summer season
This includes the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the free shows they host at Millenium Park on Mondays and Thursdays. I would say this is a good sign that Lolla is getting cancelled soon, if smaller attended outdoor summer shows are being cancelled.
Definitely. I just looked up the dates for this, and it was between June 12 and August 17. Lolla falls within that.
I mean, of course Lollapalooza is getting canceled.
