In mid-March, the Shaky Knees Festival moved from May to October in the hope that the coronavirus pandemic would be diminished by fall. But now the annual music gathering has joined much of the rest of the industry and canceled its 2020 edition.

A statement on the fest's website and social media thanks the artists and fans who were planning to perform and attend.

For tickets purchased directly through Shaky Knees, refunds will be processed “in as little as 30 business days.” Previously requested refunds are also still being processed.

This year’s festival would have featured The Black Keys, The Strokes and The Smashing Pumpkins as headliners.

Sister festival, the country-themed Shaky Boots, was set to return this year after a hiatus, but it, too, was canceled earlier this spring.
