2021 CMA Fest Canceled

Country Music fans will have to wait another year ... again.

The 2021 CMA Fest is canceled due to COVID-19 concerns. CMA Fest was also canceled last year.

A statement was released from the Country Music Association stating, “After thoughtful deliberation, we are saddened to share that CMA Fest will not take place in 2021. We know our fans near and far have hoped that the festival could safely return this summer, and while we are encouraged to see COVID-19 vaccines becoming more widely available, we still face several challenges that prevent us from bringing our fans around the world the CMA Fest experience they have come to expect. But rest assured, we have already started planning what will be the most EPIC celebration of Country Music next summer. Mark your calendars for CMA Fest June 9-12, 2022!”
