CMA Fest 2020 Canceled Amid Crisis: 'We Hope You Will Join Us Next Year'

The 2020 CMA Fest has been canceled amid the ongoing world health crisis.

The Country Music Association announced in a statement on Tuesday (March 31) that they “cannot in good conscience” move forward with the event this year.

The annual festival was originally set to take place from June 4 through 7 in Nashville, the country music capital of the world.

“After careful deliberation, and in following the latest guidance from national, state and local authorities, we are sad to announce that CMA Fest will not take place in 2020. Whether you planned to attend CMA Fest for the first time, or you have attended many times throughout the last 48 years, we know how special this festival is for Country Music fans around the globe and that many will be disappointed by this decision. As the world is still greatly affected by the spread of COVID-19, we cannot in good conscience risk the health and wellbeing of our fans, artists, staff and Country Music community,” the announcement read.

“Please keep yourself and your loved ones healthy and safe, and we hope you will join us for CMA Fest next year, June 10-13, 2021,” the statement concluded.

Many festivals, tours and events are being postponed or outright canceled due to coronavirus. Find out what else…
