Lights All Night Minneapolis’ upcoming edition will be put on ice due to their concern for fans, artists, employees, and local communities.

Although 2021 has seen the return of festivals and club shows after a year without them due to the ongoing pandemic, the recent uptick in cases of COVID-19 across the country this month has been a cause of concern for many. While other New Year’s Eve events are still pressing on with a variety of policies to keep their attendees safe, Lights All Night Minneapolis has opted to not move forward with their upcoming edition.

Originally set to be hosted on December 30-31 at The Armory, Lights All Night Minneapolis looked to help ring in the new year with a stacked lineup featuring artists such as ZHU, JAUZ, Bob Moses, SIDEPIECE, ATLiens, and Feed Me, among others. Today, those plans were dashed as the festival’s organizers announced that it would not take place due to concerns about the safety of attendees, artists employees, and the local communities.

“Out of concern for our fans, artists, employees, and local communities, we are sad to announce Lights All Night Minneapolis will not be held this year,” reads the statement posted on Lights All Night Minneapolis’ socials. “We apologize for any inconvenience and look forward to seeing you again soon.”

Those who had purchased passes to Lights All Night Minneapolis will receive a full refund, which should arrive on the card they used in up to 15 business days. If you have questions about your transaction or do not receive the refund by then, please email

Stay tuned for further details on festival postponements and cancelations as concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic continue.
