The “Fans’ Ballot” will be comprised of the top five artists from the fan vote and will be counted among the other ballots filled out by various artists, historians, and music industry professionals.
The 2021 inductees will be announced in May 2021, while the induction ceremony is currently slated to take place this fall in Cleveland.
