For the second year in a row, CMA Fest is forced to cancel due to the ongoing worldwide COVID-19 pandemic. The annual event is set to return in 2022.
The Country Music Association released an official statement today, March 2:
“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!”
