Jay Z’s Made in America Festival Has Been Canceled For 2020

Roc Nation has officially announced that Jay Z’s Made in America Festival has been canceled for 2020. The festival was canceled in part due to the coronavirus pandemic and because of the ongoing protests against police brutality and systemic racism.

The festival has been rescheduled for Labor Day Weekend in 2021.

“2020 is a year like no other. We are in a pivotal time in this nation’s history. Collectively, we are fighting parallel pandemics, COVID-19, systematic racism and police brutality. Now is the time to protect the health of our artists, fans, partners and community as well as focus on our support for organizations and individuals fighting for social justice and equality in our country. Therefore, the Made In America festival will be rescheduled for Labor Day Weekend 2021,” a statement read.

“We look forward to working alongside the Mayor’s office and returning to the wonderful city of Philadelphia next year. Please hold onto your tickets, as they will be valid for next year, and we will be sharing additional information as it becomes available via our website and social media.”

Anyone who wishes to receive a refund will be able to due so at the point of purchase.

The coronavirus outbreak has led to the cancellation or postponing of many large events including the NCAA Tournament, Coachella, SXSW, the Winter X Games, Stagecoach, Ultra Music Festival in Miami, Bonnaroo and more. The NBA, NHL, and MLS temporarily suspended their seasons.

The coronavirus mainly comes from animals and a majority of those who were infected early either worked at or frequently visited the Huanan seafood wholesale market in Wuhan, according to The Guardian. The virus is similar to Severe acute respiratory syndrome (Sars) and Middle Eastern respiratory syndrome (Mers).

The Wuhan coronavirus is transmitted from person to person through “droplet transmission.” That means an infected person can pass the virus by sneezing or coughing on another person as well as by direct contact.

While a majority of the cases have been detected in the United States and China — with more than 123,000 deaths in the United States — it has now reached many countries around the world. It has also been confirmed in Italy, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, and many other eastern countries.
