Music festivals proceed to be pushed again as COVID spikes
Despite our high hopes, major music festivals in 2021 will keep being postponed and canceled – with two new announcements just this week.
First, BPM Festival in Costa Rica has canceled its dates for 2021 after its other canceled event in Malta. New dates have been postponed to January 12-18, 2022 as the coronavirus continues to rage.
The festival should be directed by Nicole Moudaber, Paco Osuna, Dubfire, Loco Dice, Luciano, and more. At this rate, the line-up can likely change at the time of the festival.
As per the statement below, ticket holders will be contacted with options shortly. Read the full statement below for more information.

It seems that the festival season depends on how we deal with the coming weeks and months and when vaccines are given out. We will keep you updated as more music festivals throughout the year make these tough calls. Stay tuned.
