This year’s CMA Fest marks the first time that the event has been held since 2019, after being forced to cancel the last two years, because of the pandemic.

“After thoughtful deliberation, we are saddened to share that CMA Fest will not take place in 2021,” the Country Music Association announced last year. “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!”
