Producers of the Outside Lands Music Festival have officially canceled the 2020 event and instead focused on the 2021 iteration, which will be headlined by Lizzo, Tame Impala, The Strokes, Tyler, the Creator, and include many of the artists originally rumored to play this August. The 2021 three-day general admission, VIP, payment plan and Golden Gate Club passes will go on-sale tomorrow at 10 a.m.
The festival will take place on Aug. 6 to 8, 2021.
The decision to postpone this year’s festival was one made after discussions with local and state health authorities and city officials. The announcement serves primarily to allow fans to request refunds, as it was essentially canceled earlier in the summer by both San Francisco Mayor London Breed and Gov. Gavin Newsom, both of whom have said that no large gatherings will be permitted through the end of August.
“There’s been a lot of bad news out there with regard to COVID-19 and we want to give people something to look forward to,” said Allen Scott, head of concerts and festivals at Another Planet Entertainment and co-producer of Outside Lands. “We’re hopeful that in sharing our excitement about the future of the festival and next year’s lineup, that it provides some much-needed positivity for our fans and community.”
The 2021 festival will include performances by Vampire Weekend, J. Balvin, Kehlani, The 1975, Zhu, Young Thug, Khruangbin, Beach House, Melanie Martinez, Brittany Howard, Burna Boy, Polo & Pan, Big Thief and others.
The Payment Plan three-day pass start at $99 down with no additional payments until 2021. There are also three tiered price levels for GA and VIP passes. Those who previously purchased Eager Beacer tickets to the 2020 festival can carry those tickets over to 2021, or get a refund. Visit this site to begin the refund process.

Outside Lands joins many large music festivals nationwide, such as Coachella and Lollapalooza in canceling. In the Bay Area, the Stern Grove Music Festival has already been canceled for 2020, as well as numerous county fairs. BottleRock Napa Valley has been postponed from May to October. It’s currently scheduled for Oct. 2 to 4.
