Post Malone’s third annual Posty Fest, announced just two weeks ago, has been postponed until 2022.
“Due to logistical issues affecting festival production, Posty Fest is postponed to 2022. Refunds are available at point of purchase,” festival organizers Live Nation said in a statement to Rolling stone. “We look forward to making 2022 our biggest year yet. Stay safe everyone, see you soon. “
No reason for the cancellation was provided, but Variety reports that the continued rise in Covid-19 cases in Malone’s native Texas played a role in the festival’s nearly full year-long decline; It’s not clear whether Live Nation’s vaccination or negative test requirement that goes into effect Oct. 5 for all of their festivals (including those in Texas opposed to the mandate) also played a role in the cancellation.
Posty Fest 2021 was scheduled to take place on Halloween weekend, October 30-31, outside the Dallas Cowboys AT&T Stadium with lineup including Malone, Megan Thee Stallion, Lil Uzi Vert, Roddy Ricch, Jack Harlow, Polo G, Rod Wave, Turnstile, Flo Milli, and many more.
While his namesake festival has been postponed, Malone has spent the summer headlining various music festivals, including Lollapalooza, Miami’s Rolling Loud, and most recently New York’s Governors Ball.
