Knoxville's Big Ears was one of the festivals to be knocked out by the coronavirus pandemic, cancelling its 2020 edition just weeks before it was set to happen. They've just announced they'll be taking 2021 off as well but will be back for its 2022 edition, taking place March 24-27. They write:
It will be similar in scale and footprint to the 2017, 2018, and 2019 festivals. We are deeply immersed in the booking process already and I can assure you that we will once again have an extraordinary array of great musicians joining us for a spectacular weekend.
