The Country Music Association made a huge announcement today on the fate of the annual CMA Music Fest in Nashville.

The 2020 CMA Music Fest has been canceled as a result of COVID-19 concerns. The four day music festival in downtown Nashville was scheduled to take place June 4-7 this year. A lineup was never released, but usually the biggest stars in country music are in attendance with nightly concerts at Nissan Stadium as well as hundreds of free sets at stages throughout downtown Nashville, along with fan club parties, meet and greets and other events.

The Country Music Association addressed those who have already purchased tickets for the 2020 event in a press release:

We will honor four-day passes purchased for this year’s event for CMA Fest 2021. However, if you prefer a full refund, we will provide one upon request if your passes were purchased through Ticketmaster or the CMA Fest Box Office. Those who purchased passes through non-official channels should contact the seller directly. Within the next 24-48 hours, all four-day pass purchasers will receive an email with further instructions.

The 2021 CMA Fest will be held in Nashville June 10-13 for those who want to go ahead and make plans to attend.
