Lover Fest is the upcoming sixth concert tour and first music festival tour by American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift, in support of her seventh studio album, Lover (2019). The tour is set to begin on June 20 in Werchter, Belgium, and conclude in Foxborough, Massachusetts on August 1 of the same year.
Background and development
In an interview with Ryan Seacrest on August 27, 2019, four days after the release of Lover, Swift explained that she was not yet sure of her plans for a tour in support of the album, and stated that she did not want her life to become a constant cycle of releasing an album and immediately touring after release. Swift later hinted in an interview with Zane Lowe in October that family health obligations prevented her from organizing and embarking on a larger-scale tour. The tour was announced through Swift's social media and website on September 17, 2019. Swift explained on social media that:
The Lover album is open fields, sunsets, + SUMMER. I want to perform it in a way that feels authentic. I want to go to some places I haven't been and play festivals. Where we didn't have festivals, we made some.
The July 18, 2020, concert in São Paulo is set to be Swift's first official show ever in both Brazil and the continent of South America. Tickets for the show went on sale on October 25, with more than 100,000 people reportedly queuing online to get tickets, selling out in around 12 hours. Due to overwhelming demand, a second show was added. The tour will also be her first visit to Denmark, Poland, and Portugal. The show in Berlin will mark her first show in the city in six years since The Red Tour and her first show in Germany in five years since The 1989 World Tour. It sold out seconds after officially going on sale. On October 29, it was announced that Swift would be performing in Spain. The festival shows in Belgium, Norway, France, and Spain will mark her first performances in each country in nine years since the Speak Now World Tour.
In early December 2019, the singer announced that she would be headlining British Summer Time in London on July 11, 2020, becoming her second time headlining the festival with the first being five years prior, incorporated as part of the The 1989 World Tour. In mid-December, after much speculation, Swift was confirmed as the headliner for the Glastonbury Festival—one of the world's biggest music festivals—on its 50th anniversary in June 2020. She was set to become just the sixth solo female artist to headline in the festival's history. However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the festival was cancelled.
On April 6, the Roskilde Festival was canceled due to the ongoing pandemic  and on April 8, the British Summer Time festival was canceled due to the same reason.
Swift's performances at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California will make her the first artist to perform there, along with the first woman to hold the opening event in an NFL stadium. She would have been the only female artist to headline at Glastonbury in 2020 and just the sixth solo female to do so in the festival's fifty-year history, but the show was cancelled on March 18, 2020, due to concerns over the coronavirus pandemic.
