The lineup is expected to be released sometime next week. This makes it one of the first major US music festival brands to reveal a lineup in 2021.
“We think that being one of the first festivals to announce again is a sign of hope, a sign of optimism,” said CEO Justin Weniger. “It gives people now in this final homestretch something to look forward to, gives them a reason to start booking travel again or even just talking to friends about how exciting it would be to go to Vegas for a weekend.”
This announcement comes with hesitation, as the country is still dealing with the pandemic, despite increase vaccine rollouts.
“Almost certainly there will be new protocols, as the world has shifted around us, that we’ll implement to ensure the health and safety of the guest, but I don’t think anybody knows specifically what those are just yet,” he said.
This festival has brought in some of the biggest names in the music industry, from all different genres. Although it was canceled last year, 2019 brought in some major artists, including Vampire Weekend, Louis The Child, Of Monsters and Men, Kaskade, Tame Impala, The Black Keys, Portugal. the Man, Chance the Rapper, and Billie Eilish, to name a few.
