Austin City Limits 2020 festival has been canceled.

Austin City Limits announced Wednesday that it will cancel its 2020 event, the Austin City Limits Music Festival, set to take place in October, as it does every year.


"We would have loved to put on another memorable show this year, however, with the uncertainty surrounding the current situation in Texas, this decision is the only responsible solution," a statement on the website reads.

Festival organizers vowed to return next year to celebrate its 20th anniversary.

"We will return to Zilker Park on October 1-3 and October 8-10, 2021 to celebrate our 20th Anniversary. We encourage fans who have already purchased tickets to hold on to them to lock in access to next year's festival at 2019 prices. Refunds will be made available for fans who purchased directly through the festival and cannot attend next year's dates. All current ticket holders will receive an email from Front Gate Tickets shortly with information on both options."
