Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many bands including the likes of Clutch were forced to postpone and/or cancel gigs across the globe. Today, the Frederick, Maryland heavy rockers have announced plans to turn their 2020 Festival Summer into a virtual event.
“Clutch has reached out to all promoters of their originally scheduled European festival dates and proposed to release playlists on their Spotify channel of the sets they were set to perform on the respective days,” reads today’s official announcement.

Clutch’s Jean-Paul Gaster comments: “The opportunity to perform at summertime festivals in Europe is very special to us. The shows we play and the bands we get to see are experiences we look forward to every year. We can’t wait to return to Europe and be a part of these legendary festivals in 2021! Until then, we hope Clutch fans from around the world will enjoy these Festival playlists. Take care and see y’all soon!”
