Tennessee's Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival was set to take place from June 11 to 14 and feature the likes of Tool, Lizzo and Tame Impala. Now, however, organizers have postponed the event until September 24 to 27. Tickets will now be honoured at this later date.
The U.K.'s famed Glastonbury, meanwhile, has outright cancelled its 2020 festival due to growing concerns about the virus. This means, Kendrick Lamar, Paul McCartney, Taylor Swift and many more will not be playing the festival this year.
