We were all hoping that some festivals would return next year, and according to Insomniacs sales offers, there might be at least a few. Unfortunately, those at the beginning of the year are still heavily burdened by the unknown, and Buku decided in March to postpone the postponement again to 2022.
"So here's the deal," the festival wrote in a statement to fans, "with COVID things are still too crazy to continue planning for a BUKU in March." Cases have risen, restrictions on large gatherings are still strict, and while there is some promising vaccine news for later in 2021, broad availability seems unlikely until March. "
Other festivals in early 2020, like Coachella, are slated to postpone their events next year, while others like Ultra just haven't said a word.
In short: "March 2021 is over and the big BUKU will return in March 2022 for the 10th anniversary."

In the meantime, however, BUKU is planning a new event called Planet B for October, which they describe as a “one-off, alternative variant” of their flagship event.
Keep an eye out for more news during the New Year.
