Lights All Night 2020 issued a statement on Instagram announcing the cancellation of this year’s upcoming New Year’s Eve event due to COVID-19 concerns.
“This has been the note that’s been keeping us up at night. It’s true, #LAN2020 is not happening. There’s simply no way we can justify holding on to your hard-earned money with the slim hope that we’re able to gather at the end of the year. With the gloom of COVID-19 and the current political & environmental crises this country is facing, we are finding ourselves cherishing the last decade of experience more and more each day.
Our world desperately needs the energy, love, and compassion that Lights All Night fans, staff, artists, and fans have been known to radiate. While it may not feel like it, we will get back to long wild nights that create lifelong memories and Lights All Nights will return…Let’s pledge to use this time apart to further our connections with each other and provide assistance to those who need it most.”– Lights All Night
