There will be no mosh pits on Berlin’s Olympic grounds this year.
The latest event cancellations in Germany make it clear that there won’t be any major festivals through September.
Lollapalooza Berlin and the premiere of Superbloom in Munich were both set to take place Sept. 5-6, sharing a lot of artists, including Miley Cyrus, DJ Snake and AnnenMayKantereit.
But with the German government extending the ban of large events until August 31, and the general uncertainty surrounding the rest of the year, promoters Live Nation and Goodlive saw themselves forced to pull the plug on both early-September events.

Munich’s scenic Olympic Park will remain empty this September.
Superbloom already announced new dates for 2021, Sept. 4-5.
Ticket holders of both events will be contacted soon. Germany recently introduced a new law allowing promoters to issue vouchers that would be valid for other Live Nation/Goodlive events. Fans may also be offered to use their tickets for next year’s festivals, after which a refund becomes due.
Goodlive, of course, also had to cancel its other German events, Melt, Splash and Full Force festivals.
All of Live Nation’s European Lollapalooza editions, which includes Germany, Sweden and France, had to be cancelled due to government decisions. The South American brands in Chile and Argentina have been moved to Nov. 27-29, while the Brazil edition will now take place, Dec. 4–6.
The Lollas in South America have already confirmed that their original 2020 headliners Travis Scott, Guns N’ Roses and The Strokes confirmed their participation in the rescheduled events.
