With the world slowly returning to some sense of normalcy, we can finally start looking forward to some of the biggest electronic music concerts of the year.
The COVID-19 pandemic has forced the cancellation of countless concerts and music festivals, leaving many music fans feeling disappointed and disheartened. However, there is some good news on the horizon: many electronic music concerts are already being planned for 2021. So if you’re a fan of electronic music, here are some concerts to look forward to next year.
One of the most highly anticipated electronic music events of 2021 is Ultra Music Festival, which is set to take place in Miami from March 26-28. The festival will feature performances from some of the biggest names in the electronic music scene, including David Guetta, Tiësto, and Armin van Buuren.
Another can’t-miss event on the electronic music calendar is Tomorrowland, which is set to take place in Belgium from July 16-18. Tomorrowland is one of the largest and most popular electronic music festivals in the world, and it always features an amazing lineup of DJs and producers.
