Country Summer is postponed until June 25 to 27, 2021. When California was hit hard by COVID-19, the annual three-day event was rescheduled for Oct. 23 to 25, 2020.
“Our team worked diligently and secured a top-notch lineup, including most of the same country music entertainers, for the October dates,” Alan Jacoby, executive producer of Impact Entertainment, said. “However, fan’s health and safety are our top priorities.
“We were hopeful the coronavirus situation would improve significantly, and rules would be relaxed enough for us to stage a spectacular event in October. Unfortunately, circumstances beyond our control are prohibiting mass gatherings this year.
In announcing re-opening rules, California Gov. Gavin Newsom laid out a four-stage plan. The final phase would end all restrictions allowing for large concert gatherings, but most likely, will not be possible for many months until a vaccine is available or most people are immune to the virus.
“Our festivals are not social-distancing-oriented events. They’re thousands and thousands of like-minded country music fans coming together for a big celebration,” Jacoby said. “While disappointing for this year, we’re committed to producing a phenomenal fest in 2021.”
