CMA Fest 2021 has been canceled amid ongoing concerns surrounding the pandemic and travel. The following information was released today by the CMA

CMA CEO Sarah Trahern shared with CMA members, “We are deeply disappointed that yet another summer will pass without seeing so many of you who help bring country music to our fans around the world. Unlike many other music festivals that take place from a single location, CMA Fest has a rather large footprint that spans across the entire downtown Nashville area, including Nissan StadiumAscend Amphitheater and Music City Center. We know that many of our performers and attendees will ask why we cannot reschedule our event to take place later in 2021; however, to produce CMA Fest at the scale we normally do requires a significant amount of advance planning and production. Given the length of our production window, it was simply impossible to find an available window later this summer or into the fall.” .

New dates for CMA Fest 2022 are June 9-12, 2022. Any previously purchased four-day passes from CMA Fest 2020 will continue to roll over for CMA Fest 2022; ticketholders will receive an email with further information about retaining passes or requesting a full refund. Additional information here.
