A Complete List Of Top Festivals, Concerts, & Events Canceled In 2021

“Music Is The Strongest Form Of Magic, And Through Festivals You Can Have A Real Experience Of Magic”


Currently, the entertainment industry is on pause due to the coronavirus pandemic. When coronavirus hit upon us last year, all the top festivals, music concerts, and events got postponed. Gradually, things paced up as vaccination news came to the market. Everyone began to get back to their previous life until the world struggles to fight the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. 


Rescheduling of the music festivals, concerts happened in the hope that 2021 would act lighter upon us and would bring new vibes to the brand new year. But the raging of coronavirus worldwide and vaccination shots for the masses are going slower than our anticipation. It stands to reason that rescheduled concerts, shows, festivals, and events got postponed once again. 


In the U.S., Corona cases are on a continual rise which results in the cancellation of events, concerts, and festivals. Just not the celebrations have been postponed, even TV shows and series are on continual delay. Highly anticipated and much-awaited concert tours - Taylor Swift’s Lover Fest, Kenny Chesney’s Chillaxification Tour, and of course, Harry Styles’s Love on Tour got postponed.


Leisure has compiled a complete list of ongoing festivals and concerts that got postponed or canceled due to an ongoing global pandemic. 


The Biggest Concert Tours And Festivals Got Canceled Due To Ongoing Pandemic 


We hate to break it to you that if you are looking forward to packing your bags for big concert tours, and music festivals, then hold on to your plans. However, a sigh of relief for the industry is that film and television production is allowed to resume California. Imagine, now you can see your favorite series coming your way in a brand new way. After a long break, all the celebrities would be back on their feet and shoot impressive seasons for you with safety regulations. Seeing the ongoing pandemic around the country, Broadway theaters will remain closed until May 2021.
