“We are disappointed that we will not be able to share our vision of the Festival of tomorrow soon today. The security of our community, the well-being of all, and the healing of our planet are our underlying goals, “the festival said in a statement.” Therefore, due to government restrictions and mandates resulting from the pandemic of COVID-19, VIRGIN FEST in Los Angeles cannot go as planned for next month. “
Music festivals and large-scale gatherings, such as concerts, are still banned by the California home order, although some small businesses were allowed to reopen last weekend. California Governor Gavin Newsom said large-scale events such as sporting events and concerts are not expected to return this summer, and some experts will set fall 2021 as the date for reopening.
One of the main artists, Lizzo, won three Grammy Awards this year for the best solo pop performance for “Truth Hurts”, the best contemporary urban album for Cuz I Love You and the best R&B radio performance for “Jerome”. Major Lazer and Marcus Mumford of Mumford and Sons recently collaborated on a song called “Lay Your Head On Me”.
