Lockn’ Festival Postponed To 2021

Lockn’ Festival Postponed To 2021

Last month, the organizers behind the Virginia-based jam band festival Lockn’ were still planning to go ahead with an in-person event in October. The fest, which had already been delayed from June, was centered around three different headlining sets from Grateful Dead member Phil Lesh to celebrate his 80th birthday. But Lockn’ recently announced that the 2020 edition of their fest is officially cancelled and that they’ll reconvene next October in 2021.

“Our hearts were hopeful these past months as we have put our experience and resources into a plan to safely produce LOCKN’ 2020,” they wrote in their statement. “Despite the efforts of our team, it’s become clear it won’t be viable to safely and responsibly gather at LOCKN’ in 2020. So, we must announce that we have decided to shift our focus to 2021.”

Ticketholders for the 2020 event can roll over their tickets to the 2021 event, or get a full refund. Lockn’ are also planning a crowdless virtual performance from Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, which will be streamed from the farm where Lockn’ usually takes place.

More info on tickets and refunds can be found here.
