Rampage, one of the world's largest dubstep and drum & bass music festivals, has been postponed to 2022 amid fears of the Omicron variant of COVID-19. 

The news arrives shortly after the organizers of the Belgium-based fest announced their lineup, which included headlining acts such as Pendulum and NOISIA, for the December 10th and 11th show dates.

Authorities in Belgium decided that it is unsafe for events to continue in the coming weeks, according to a recent Instagram post shared by Rampage. According to a technical brief issued by the World Health Organization on Sunday, "the likelihood of potential further spread of omicron at the global level is high."

"We are truly heartbroken that all our hard work is down the drain again, and we can’t welcome you back to our beloved Sportpaleis for what would surely have been an incredible burst of energy and love," reads Rampage's post. "Please hold tight, and have faith that we’ll come out of all this very soon to celebrate life and bass music, because we will be back and it will be glorious!!!"
