Taylor Swift Announces Her Very Own Festival
Lover Fest takes place over two weekends in L.A. and Foxborough
Following headlining slots at the likes of Roskilde, Open'er Festival and Nos Alive, Swift will return to North America to host what's been dubbed Lover Fest.
The shows will be split between Los Angeles and Foxborough, MA, and known as Lover Fest West and Lover Fest East.
The former will feature two back-to-back shows to open L.A.'s brand new SoFi Stadium on July 25 and 26, while the latter will take over the New England Patriots' home field on July 31 and August 1.
Significantly, these will mark Swift's only U.S. dates for 2020, breaking her typical habit of a massive world tour in support of each new album she releases — though she has hinted that additional U.K. and international shows and festivals will be added later.
"For me, the Lover album is open fields and sunsets and SUMMER," Swift wrote in a statement. "I want to celebrate the album and perform it live with you in a way that feels authentic to the music. I want to go to some places I haven't been, and play festivals for the first time in ages...and where we didn't have festivals, we made some."
Openers for the Lover Fests are expected to be announced soon.
Tickets for the events will go on sale to the general public on October 17. Find full information at Swift's official website.
