On Aug. 3, Four Chord Music Festival announced that its upcoming 2020 event has been postponed until 2021. Despite this setback due to coronavirus, however, blink-182 and the Used are still headlining the 2021 festival.
Along with the headliners, all of the acts scheduled to perform at this year’s Four Chord Music Festival are returning for 2021. As well, Mayday Parade have been added to the festival lineup.
The ongoing pandemic has caused the postponement of most 2020 festivals. Reading and Leeds, Glastonbury, SXSW, Coachella and Download are just a few of the festivals to postpone its events until 2021.
Now, the Pittsburgh area-based Four Chord Music Festival is also postponing its 2020 event. Four Chord was set to return for its seventh year this summer on July 11. However, the ongoing pandemic and spikes in COVID-19 cases have caused the entire event to move to 2021.
Four Chord Festival first announced this year’s postponement in May.
“We have been following the COVID-19 pandemic very, very closely over the last month and tried everything humanly possible to keep the original date,” the statement says. “But after consultation with local and state officials, we feel that postponing the festival is the responsible thing to do. We do not want to play any role in the spreading of the virus.”
