In the wake of big venues and events like Miami's Ultra Music Fest being postponed amidst the growing number of coronavirus cases in Florida, festival-goers in the Sunshine State are stuck between being cautious and living their lives normally. So it might come as a breath of fresh air that the organizers of Sunset Music Fest in Tampa still seem optimistic for 2020, as they just released their second lineup. Woop Woop.
There is still plenty of time for officials to monitor the epidemic, as the festival is set to take place Memorial Day weekend on Saturday and Sunday, May 23 and 24 at the Raymond James Stadium north lot in Tampa.
Narcity spoke to an SMF representative who confirmed the fest is still a go at time of publishing, and we will update if more or different information becomes available.
The closure of Ultra Music Fest was enforced by Miami officials as a way to curb international travel and the potential spread of the virus. It is unclear at this time if Tampa officials have discussed postponing SMF.
So for now, it's business as usual, and ravers can still look forward to this event.
The second lineup was released yesterday, with big names from every genre of electronic music popping up on the roster. Stars like TroyBoi, NGHTMRE, and Slander will take the stage this year, with over 50 other artists also announced.
Tickets are currently still on sale with several different options to choose from.
General admission tickets are running for $159.95, general admission plus for $179.95, and VIP for $239.95 with payment plans starting at $49.
While we all hold on to hope that the show will go on, Floridians can stay up to date on current news about the virus by checking the Florida Department of Health site here.
