The 2020 Firefly Music Festival Is The Latest Casualty of the Coronavirus
It's probably not a surprise at this point, but the highly-anticipated Firefly Music Festival for 2020 has been canceled in wake of the coronavirus outbreak.
The event, held annually in Dover, DE, which was originally scheduled for June 18-21, featured headliners Khalid, Blink 182, Halsey, Billie Eilish Rage Against the Machine, Diplo and more.
"We take the safety and health of our fans, staff, and community seriously and we urge everyone to follow the guidelines and protocols put forth by public health officials," the event's organizers wrote in a statement shared midday Tuesday.
They called it a difficult decision, of course, but noted that they are looking forward to the 2021 festival.
"In these unprecedented times, we send you our love. Thank you for your support and we look forward to welcoming you in the Woodlands in June 2020 where we will dance, sing and celebrate live music together," officials wrote in a statement issued midday Tuesday.
