Another Las Vegas music festival has canceled its 2020 edition.

Heavy and eclectic rock gathering Psycho Las Vegas has pushed its fifth edition from August 14-16, 2020, until August 20-22, 2021, organizers announced today on social media. The event will remain at Mandalay Bay, site of its 2019 festival after three years at the Hard Rock Hotel.

"Gambling is in our blood, but we can't roll the dice on this one," the post reads. "Nearly all bands have signed on for the new dates, but we are awaiting confirmation from one final artist before presenting our updated lineup. We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience."

Psycho 2020 was to have featured headliners Danzig, Mercyful Fate and Emperor, along with such acts as The Flaming Lips, Blue Öyster Cult, Down, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Ty Segall, Mayhem, Satyricon, Warpaint, Blond Redhead, At the Gates and Poison the Well.

According to the statement, refunds for tickets will be available once the 2021 lineup has been announced, and hotel rooms booked through the festival will be automatically canceled.

Life Is Beautiful and Punk Rock Bowling have also announced they will not resume until 2021, while Electric Daisy Carnival has postponed its 2020 edition until October.
