CMA CEO Sarah Trahern announced today (March 2) that CMA Fest will not take place in 2021, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
In a letter to CMA Members, Trahern said: “We are deeply disappointed that yet another summer will pass without seeing so many of you who help bring country music to our fans around the world. While we are optimistic with the pace at which COVID-19 vaccines are becoming more widely available, we still face several challenges that prevent us from bringing our many artists, crew members and fans together safely for the full CMA Fest experience we know everyone has come to expect.”
Passes will be honored at CMA Fest 2022 for fans who purchased four-day passes for CMA Fest 2020. Refunds will also be available.
CMA Fest 2022 is slated for June 9-12, 2022.
