While Pa’l Norte has not yet come out to comment on it, everything seems to indicate that it will be by order of the authorities that this 2020 edition, led by artists such as Tame Impala, The Strokes and Alejandro Fernández, It will not take place in the land of the roasted carnita and in two months. But hey, better times will come for everyone.
And yes, surely in the next few days several similar events will start making similar announcementsBecause with the health emergency of the COVID-19 it is difficult to see our favorite artists on stage and live again. So all we have to do is keep an eye on the status of other concerts and festivals.
