The international country music festival C2C, which was to launch on Friday (March 13) and run through March 15, has been postponed, according to the festival’s organizers. Organizers offered an announcement of the postponement on Thursday (March 12), citing the COVID-19 pandemic, shifting international travel policies, and other restrictions as reasons for postponing the event.
Performers on the bill included Eric Church, Darius Rucker, Luke Combs, Brett Young, Tanya Tucker, Old Crow Medicine Show and more.
“Due to the global pandemic of COVID-19 and the changing nature of travel policies in other countries alongside possible extended future restrictions, it is with regret that Country to Country Festival 2020 – London, Dublin and Glasgow – is being postponed,” organizers offered in a statement. “Ticket holders are advised to hold onto their tickets. More information will be announced in the coming days on the rescheduled event. Thank you all for your understanding and patience at this very difficult time. C2C and its organizers apologize wholeheartedly for the time to work through the issues to get this statement out.”
The organization was created by AEG Europe and SJM Concerts in association with the Country Music Association.
Earlier on Thursday, the organization announced that the CMA Songwriters Series concert set for Indigo at the 02 was canceled. Earlier this week, Old Dominion pulled out of their C2C performance slot.
“After much consideration, we have decided to withdraw from our upcoming performances as part of the C2C Music Festival in Berlin, Amsterdam, Dublin, London and Glasgow,” the band said via a message on Twitter. “We are so sorry to disappoint our fans overseas; however with the growing uncertainty and unpredictable nature of the virus that is spreading throughout the world, the safety and security of our entire team is the top priority. We are forever grateful for every opportunity we get to witness just how far our music is reaching, and we will be back across the world as soon as we can. Much love and thank you for your support – Matthew, Trevor, Brad, Geoff & Whit.”
