Lovers & Friends Festival Pushed Back, Downgraded to a Single Day

Throwback hip-hop/R&B fest stumbled out of the gate before expanding to two days

Remember Lovers & Friends, the fest that announced a powerhouse lineup of throwback and current hip-hop and R&B stars that had some communication problems? Well, it’s been downgraded.

The fest, which expanded to two days following the excitement surrounding its lineup, has been pushed (obviously) to Aug. 8 at The Grounds at Dignity Health Sports Park. However, it’s back to being a single-day event.

Headliners include Ms. Lauryn Hill, Usher, Ludacris, Lil Jon and TLC. Other artists on the bill include Jhene Aiko, Megan Thee Stallion, Doja Cat, Nelly, T-Pain, Lil Kim, Brandy, Ja Rule, Fat Joe among many.

Lovers & Friends is the latest festival to be pushed due to the coronavirus outbreak. Earlier in the day, New York City’s Governor’s Ball was canceled. It will return in 2021.
