Amid growing concerns over COVID-19, the novel coronavirus, the Country Music Association released a statement about the upcoming 2020 CMA Music Festival.
The CMA shared that the festival will proceed as planned for now and that they will continue to monitor the situation in the weeks leading up to CMA Fest. Festival organizers also said that they are committed to the health and safety of their “fans, artists and community.”
The 2020 CMA Music Festival is scheduled to take place in Nashville June 4-7. The CMA has not yet revealed which artists will perform at the festival.
The statement from the Country Music Association was released shortly after World Health Organization declared the coronavirus outbreak a global pandemic.
Several major events have already been cancelled, including Coachella, Stagecoach, Tin Pan South and the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. These events, however, were scheduled to take place much sooner than CMA Fest.
