Getting real sick of this type of news at this point…
Country Summer Music Festival in Santa Rosa, California announced today that the festival was being postponed to June 17 – 19, 2022 due to the uncertainty surrounding COVID and the guidance on live events from state officials.
This year’s festival, which was already postponed from 2020, was originally scheduled for June 18 – 20 and was set to feature headliners Eric Church, Kelsea Ballerini and Chris Young, along with artists like Tracy Lawrence, Justin Moore and Parker McCollum.
Organizers say they’re working on an updated lineup, and once that’s set they will offer existing ticketholders (some who still have tickets from the postponed 2020 show) the opportunity to request a refund.
The good news for music fans is that it seems like these cancellations are fewer and farther between right now, with many festivals still scheduled to take place as scheduled this summer. And Country Summer’s cancellation shouldn’t come as a total surprise after the cancellation of Stagecoach and given that California still has some of the tightest gathering restrictions in the country.
But still, it’s tough on people who have had tickets to these festivals for two years straight and who are no doubt anxious to get back to some live music.
They say this will be the last time this festival is postponed.
For everybody’s sake, I really hope that’s true and we’re reaching the end of this kind of news.
