JMBLYA Music Festival postponed to fall
The fest was set to feature A$AP Rocky, Lil Uzi Vert, Playboi Carti and more.
Following the likes of Rolling Loud, Coachella and SXSW, JMBLYA Music Festival has become the latest music event to be either canceled or postponed due to the Coronavirus outbreak. Through the festival’s official Instagram page on Wednesday (April 1), JMBLYA organizers informed their followers that the festival will now be rescheduled to undetermined dates this fall.
“Hey y’all, we wanted to let you all know we’re actively rescheduling JMBLYA to the fall,” the post read. “In an effort to be as transparent as possible, we want to keep you in the loop on our plans.
“We believe this is the best decision for everyone, and thank you for your patience while we work to bring you another epic year of the festival,” it continued. “We will be able to share our new dates soon, and rest assured all tickets will be honored accordingly. In the meantime, please remain safe, healthy, sane, and don’t eat all your quarantine snacks.”
The Texas-based festival had initially set dates for May 1 in Dallas, May 2 in Austin and May 3 in Houston. JMBLYA 2020 was set to be headlined by A$AP Rocky and feature performances from Lil Uzi Vert, Playboi Carti, Lil Tecca, Don Toliver, Lil Tjay and more. Based on the festival organizer’s most recent statement, it’s unclear whether the same lineup will remain for the new dates.
Along with major music festivals, tours have also been halted amidst the pandemic. Last month saw the cancellation of all Live Nation tours.
“At this time, we collectively recommend large scale events through the end of March be postponed,” the company wrote in a statement at the time. “We continue to support that small-scale events follow guidance set by their local government officials. We feel fortunate to have the flexibility to reschedule concerts, festivals, and live events as needed, and look forward to connecting fans with all their favorite artists and live entertainment soon.”
Currently, government officials recommend continuing social distancing efforts through April 30. However, that could change based on the new rates of Coronavirus cases.
