Excision’s behemoth bass festivals Lost Lands and Bass Canyon will not be taking place in 2020 due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.


After the initial round of festival cancellations and postponements popped up in response to the coronavirus pandemic that has gripped the entire world, the question of whether there would be any shows in 2020 at all began to be asked by many. Now, the festivals which had announced new dates or were traditionally held in the fall have begun to announce their own cancellations as well with Lost Lands and Bass Canyon being the latest two added to the list.

Both Lost Lands and Bass Canyon have become renowned over the years for bringing some of the best artists in the bass music realm together for a weekend filled with heavy drops, unique sets, and plenty of vibes. But headbangers looking to get their fix will have to wait until 2021 to do so after Excision and his crew took to social media earlier today to announce that both festivals have officially been shelved for 2020.

“There is no place we’d rather be this fall than with all of you in the prehistoric paradise we’ve come to call home these past few years,” the statement posted on Lost Land’s Twitter account reads. “As much as we wanted to bring the Headbanger community together after a long and difficult year, due to the ongoing pandemic, we are not able to create the best festival experience for all of you or uphold our most sacred responsibility of keeping you safe.” This statement is echoed in the one sent out on Bass Canyon’s Twitter channel as well.

Both announcements also include new dates for the festivals with Lost Lands now moving to September 24-26, 2021 and Bass Canyon moving to August 20-22, 2021. Refund requests will be available from June 26 to July 27 and will process 30 days after the final date of submission. If you elect to keep your ticket, no action is required, and payment plans will be paused until February 1, 2021. More details can be found on the Lost Lands and Bass Canyon websites.

Stay tuned for more information about other cancellations and postponements from around the world as we continue to follow the impact coronavirus has on the festival season this year.
