The annual Common Ground Music Festival has been rescheduled to July 2021 amid COVID-19 concerns.

The festival, originally scheduled for July 10-11, is held in downtown Lansing each year. Since its start, more than 1 million people have attended the festival, bringing an estimated economic impact of nearly $70 million, according to the Common Ground website.

“This decision was made after much discussion and careful consideration,” the event organizers wrote on the website. “The painful reality of COVID-19 is the reason behind our first summer with no Common Ground in 21 years. We have a tough year ahead of us, but our team looks forward to reuniting with you all and have already started working to make sure summer 2021 is one to remember.”

Blink-182, the headliner for this summer’s event, has confirmed that it will perform in 2021 and the organizers are working to confirm with the other artists for next year as well, the website said.

Tickets purchased for this year’s event will automatically become valid for the rescheduled event, and participants will receive a discount code for additional 2021 Common Ground events. 

Attendees can also request a refund. That information will be emailed to all participants who purchased directly through Eventbrite or the Cooley Law School Stadium box office. Participants who purchased through a third-party platform are encouraged to contact their vendor for refunds.
