Route 91 Harvest Festival Planning A Las Vegas Comeback In 2019

Route 91 Harvest Fest is making a comeback.

Since the horrific shooting that claimed the lives of 58 country music fans and wounded hundreds of others, the future of the festival has been in a constant state of uncertainty.

However, earlier this week, Julie Matway, Chief Operating Officer of Country Nation, said during a music-industry conference that they are hoping to bring the festival back in 2019.

“Route 91 Harvest here in Las Vegas is one of my kids,” says Julie Matway, COO of Country Nation, the festival division led by Live Nation’s president of country touring Brian O’Connell. “I am looking forward to how and when we are going to bring that back. We are working hard on that. Hopefully we will get it online for 2019,” said Matway to a round of applause.

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journalthe new Route 91 festival would take place in the fall at the Las Vegas Resorts Festival Grounds, not the Las Vegas Village.

On behalf of the entire Route 91 Harvest Family, we are completely devastated by the event that occurred last night. . Our deepest sympathies go out to the injured and the deceased and their loved ones. Senseless violence has claimed the souls of our fans and we have little in the way of answers. . Our eternal gratitude goes out to the LVMPD, Emergency services, security guards, and fans for their selfless acts of bravery while trying to help those in need. . While we will try and move forward, we will never forget this day. We will NOT let hate win over LOVE. We will NOT be defeated by senseless violence. We WILL persevere, and honor the souls that were lost. Because it matters. – BOC
