As live events and festivals begin to set their sights on a brighter post-COVID future in 2021, Lollapalooza Paris has opted to postpone once again amid uncertainty surrounding safety regulations into the summer.
Originally slated for July 17th and 18th, 2021, Lollapalooza's Paris edition will forgo another year in order to ensure safe operations and a semblance of normalcy in the aftermath of the COVID-19 era.
The festival's postponement was announced by Live Nation France via Facebook. "Due to the current uncertainties, Lollapalooza Paris will not be held this year," the post reads. "We're missing the Lolla magic more than ever, and are looking forward to getting back next year."
