Summer has long meant music festivals all across the country, but when the pandemic hit last year all of that came to a halt.

As the country begins to crawl out from under the lock downs and closures organizers of these festivals are looking for ways to launch once again.

The globally popular Glastonbury Festival in England has already announced that they will be dark for a second year…and they are not alone.

On April 27, organizers of the Burning Man Festival have also announced that they will not hold the summer music event in the Nevada desert.

After mulling over issues like crowd sizes, vaccinations, and social distancing; Burning Man organizers determined that there were too many unknows to safely and responsibly hold the festival August 26 to September 3.  Instead, organizers will focus on putting on a better show in 2022.

Organizers emphasize that they are not cancelling Burning Man, just the big festival in the desert.

The festival held in Black Rock City, north of Reno, brings approximately 80,000 music fans to the desert
