As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent precautions taken by authorities, the past year has been largely void of live music, save for a handful of tours and socially distanced festivals that proceeded cautiously. The industry has adapted by providing a multitude of livestream events, such as Disciple Love Letter Lockdown and Anberlin presenting a full series in which they have been performing entire albums from their catalogue.
As we enter what is typically a busy touring season ahead of summer festivals, there appears to be light at the end of the tunnel for those missing live music.
As of the time of this writing, below you can find upcoming tour and festival opportunities. Remember to check with event organizers and local authorities regarding safety protocols that may be in place. If you go, be sure to support your favorite artists by visiting their merch tables and letting them know you appreciate what they are doing!
