Other US festivals have set dates for 2021 in the hope that large-scale live music events can go ahead. Last week, Delaware’s Firefly Festival announced Billie Eilish, Tame Impala, Lizzo and The Killers for its 2021 edition taking place this September.

Tennessee’s Bonnaroo is also set to return this year after numerous delays caused by the pandemic. Bonnaroo, which usually takes place annually in June, has been moved from its regular summer slot and will also take place this September.
