The national are hanging tough with homecoming. Maybe Cincinnati knows something we don't
It's another AC event. I'd guess they were trying to get through Big Ears/Bonnaroo assessment, and now they're trying to see if they can swing anything to reschedule rather than cancel. If DeWine hands down the 50+ gatherings as an edict, it's over. The radio silence is really frustrating, though.
I’m guess Coachella will really come out on top with their fall lineup, as they’ve had the most time to work on it. The rest of these fests will have to be weaker versions of the OGs, given how many are competing for such a small window.
This list is just North American fests. September and October are going to be slammed with festivals. We haven’t even factored in what other festivals later decide to postpone to the fall too. Festive Owl is already saying that another major summer festival is already looking at Labor Day weekend. My lord.

I'm wondering about Prima LA/Lolla/Bumbershoot/Riot etc... who haven't even dropped their lineups yet. They would be building contingency plans before fans knows if their lineup interest them or not.
Bumbershoot is one of oldest festival in North America at 48 years straight. Ownership changes after recent underwhelming lineup years, first year for indie promoters after AEG left, Seattle C19 hot spot factor and gun-shy fans/managers/acts.
