The festival kicked off to a bumpy start when its inaugural lineup was announced in 2020.

Lovers & Friends was initially helmed by Coachella promoter Goldenvoice, but had a confusing roll-out that was marked by artists like Lil Kim claiming the lineup flyer was fake and others like Mase requesting removal from the poster, according to Rolling Stone.

The latest edition is currently slated for one day under its new promoter, C3, which produces Austin City Limits Music Festival and Lollapalooza.
