Electric Daisy Carnival 

The Electric Daisy Carnival is a popular three-day music festival. It was originally scheduled for July, but postponed due to the pandemic, and will now be held in Portimao, Portugal, from 18 to 20 June next summer. Portimao is known for its stunning beaches, which will now be home to the world’s largest electronic music festival. It will be interesting to see how the festival’s popularity changes over the years. 

Governors Ball 

Goodall, or Governors Ball, is an annual three-day music festival on New York City’s Randall’s Island. Unlike other summer festivals, GovBall does not feature a Ferris wheel or scenic vista. Unlike Tennessee’s Bonaroo, there is no camping and no escaping the city. The festival itself is a destination, but the festival experience is unique in its way. 


The Lollapalooza music festival is a four-day event in Chicago’s Grant Park. It features the best in contemporary music, ranging from hip hop to pop. Past headliner acts include Foo Fighters, Miley Cyrus, Ariana Grande, The Strokes, and Tyler, the Creator. Founded by Perry Farrell in 1991, Lollapalooza is now an international festival with events in Europe and South America. The festival has hosted legendary performances over the years. 

CMA Music Festival 

The CMA Music Festival is back! The festival took a break from the stage last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic but will return to downtown Nashville this summer. The festival was slated for June 4-7, and many of Nashville’s biggest venues, including the Nissan Stadium and Ascend Amphitheater, will host country artists. The lineup is already STACKED. But who will be performing? 

Courtney Barnett’s tour postponed 

After announcing that she would postpone her tour in September, Courtney Barnett has announced that she will still perform in New York City. The tour will now take place on February 4 in Philadelphia, New York, and Boston, Massachusetts. Tickets purchased for the original date of the show will be valid for the new date. Additionally, Barnett is no longer required to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination or wear masks. These changes reflect changes to government mandates and venue protocols. 

Red Rocks Amphitheatre concert cancellations 

Whether you’re a music fan or just curious about what the latest Red Rocks Amphitheatre concert cancelations are, you’ve probably heard about the recent string of cancellations. The Denver Performing Arts Complex closed in October, as did the McNichols Civic Center. However, concerts at Red Rocks have been rescheduled as the pandemic continues to impact the city’s entertainment scene. The website lists concert cancellations beginning April 2021, but keep in mind that the list is subject to change as the outbreak continues.
