In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the New Orleans Jazz Fest 2020 has been canceled.

The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival presented by Shell will now take place April 22 - May 2, 2021, the organizers said in a statement.

"It takes something truly momentous to interrupt a 50-year New Orleans tradition as special as the Festival, but we feel strongly that the most prudent course right now is to allow more time for the situation to stabilize," the statement added.

2020 tickets will be valid for next year's Jazz Fest. Purchasers of tickets will receive notification no later than April 22 regarding the refund process if they cannot attend in 2021.

Those who have purchased tickets at the Smoothie King Center have been advised to stay tuned to festival social media platforms for refund information, which will be posted in the next few days.

The lineup of artists who were scheduled to perform included Foo Fighters, The Who, Stevie Nicks, Lizzo, Dead & Company, Lenny Kravitz, The Black Crowes and The Beach Boys.
