Chicago festival Lollapalooza took to social media this morning to announce that it is holding off on revealing its 2020 lineup. The long-running festival is set to take place at Grant Park from July 30 - Aug. 2, but its fate is uncertain as organizers continue to watch the coronavirus crisis push events into the fall or later.

"Right around this time every year, we come together to celebrate the announcement of another incredible Lollapalooza lineup. For now, we are at home, taking care of each other, listening to music, and dreaming of summertime in Chicago," the festival said in a statement attached to a four-minute sizzle reel of previous festival footage.

Around lat March every year, the Chicago festival typically releases its lineup and allows fans to purchases passes for the four-day event. As of today, the lineup has yet to be revealed and tickets have not gone on sale to the public.

The statement continued: "While we stay in close contact with local officials, we are well underway with planning for Lolla to take place as soon as it’s safe for us all to be together in Grant Park."

The festival promised updates on the festival's future and possible lineup as soon as possible. Billboard reached out to representatives for Lollapalooza, but have not yet heard back.

Lollapalooza organizers have already been forced to postpone its festivals in Argentina, Chile and Brazil until later in the year due to the coronavirus.
