Lovers & Friends Festival Rescheduled for August


The show will go on. As more and more festivals get postponed or canceled due to the coronavirus outbreak, Lovers & Friends is the latest to announce changes.

The sold-out festival was originally a two-day event scheduled for May 8-9 at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, Calif., but has now been scaled back and postponed due to the coronavirus. The one-day festival will now take place on Aug. 8 at the same location.

The lineup remains mostly intact with headliners Ms. Lauryn Hill, TLC, and Usher with special guests Ludacris and Lil Jon. The star-studded bill also includes Jhené Aiko, Summer Walker, Megan Thee Stallion, Nelly, Lil’ Kim, Foxy Brown, Brandy, Ja Rule, T-Pain, Eve, Ma$e, Doja Cat, and more. Monica, Mya, Akon, and Sean Paul are no longer listed as performers.
