The global COVID-19 pandemic has forced Australian officials to ban large gatherings, thus forcing the cancellation of CMC Rocks QLD Festival, which was scheduled to take place March 18-22 in Willowbank, Queensland.
“It is with deep regret that the CMC Rocks QLD team announces the postponement of the 2020 event, due to take place in Willowbank, QLD next week,” festival organizers shared in a statement. “As a result of the Australian Government’s announcement this afternoon, holding the festival is now infeasible and as such, the March festival cannot proceed as planned.”
Miranda Lambert, Kip Moore, Billy Currington, Brothers Osborne, Dustin Lynch, HARDY, Jimmie Allen, Morgan Evans, LANCO, Runaway June, Kassi Ashton, Cassadee Pope, Mitchell Tenpenny, Abby Anderson, Seaforth were among the many artists slated to take the stage at the star-studded festival.
The festival urged fans to hold onto their tickets as they will be valid for the rescheduled festival, which will likely take place in October. Those unable to attend the new dates will be offered a full refund.
The postponement of CMC Rocks QLD Festival is just one of many rescheduled events announced this week in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak across the world.
