LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The annual Life is Beautiful festival that take over downtown Las Vegas annually in September has canceled its 2020 event, promising to return in 2021.

They released the following statement:

Life is Beautiful has always been more than just a music festival. It’s a movement — to appreciate the beauty in ourselves and our surroundings, to create noise that inspires and calls us to action, to celebrate love and light. In these trying and uncertain times, our purpose has never been greater.

We’re going to keep spreading light, calling back to moments of togetherness, of beauty and positivity. Let this be your safe space. And after we beat this thing together, we’ll celebrate and create new memories in September. Until then, let’s take this time to reconnect with ourselves and our loved ones, pause and reflect, listen and learn, make art and music, sing and dance. Let’s all be safe, look out for each other, and continue celebrating life and love.
