Lollapalooza 2020 is officially canceled due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, with organizers opting for a virtual event instead.

Organizers shared a statement regarding the festival’s cancellation on the website, writing, “We wish we could bring Lollapalooza to Grant Park again this year, but we understand why things can’t move forward as planned. The health and safety of our fans, artists, partners, staff and community is always our highest priority.” The beloved Chicago festival did, however, tell fans to book the festival’s original weekend so they can take part in a virtual livestream festival instead, promising “performances from around the city and beyond, epic archival sets from Chicago and the festival’s six international editions, never-before-seen footage from the 1990s and much more.” A schedule will be shared in July.

Lollapalooza 2020 was originally meant to take place from July 30 to August 2 at Chicago’s Grant Park. A lineup for its Chicago leg was never revealed, but its now-postponed South America dates in Chile, Argentina and Brazil are still set to feature headliners Guns N’ Roses, The Strokes and Travis Scott.

In other music news, Travis Scott was hit with a lawsuit for “Highest In The Room.”
