Tampa’s Sunset Music Festival (SMF) has always been a safe place to let it all hang out, but EDM fans are going to have to wait to party. Today, six months after rescheduling for December, Sunset pushed its dates back again—this time to Memorial Day weekend, May 29-30, 2021.

Tickets already purchased for the initially rescheduled December dates will roll over according to SMF which added that it will spend the weekend sending refund information to any ticketholders who cannot make the new dates.

The EDM festival usually happens on grounds surrounding Raymond James Stadium over Memorial Day weekend, and those plans obviously changed thanks to concerns surrounding the novel coronavirus.

Tampa Bay venues and promoters need you to bug Marco Rubio about saving the live music scene.
