Another country music festival has been postponed in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak.

Announced Friday, Country Thunder Florida, which was originally scheduled to take place March 27-29 at Osceola Heritage Park in Kissimmee, Florida, has been postponed until October 16-18.

This postponement was a last resort, but when it comes to our fans an staff it’s the only correct response to what has been a confusing and scary time for us all, Troy Vollhoffer, Country Thunder CEO, shared in a statement. “We felt that pushing our dates to the fall gives us the best opportunity in making the Florida Thunder experience the world-class event which fans have come to expect.”

According to the official statement, festival headliners Dierks Bentley, Kane Brown and Eric Church have been confirmed for the rescheduled dates. The statement did not specify if the other performers, Ashley McBryde, Russell Dickerson, LANCO, Lonestar, Sawyer Brown, Parker McCollum, Tenille Townes, Dallas Smith, Jon Langston, Gabby Barrett, Kameron Marlow, Meghan Patrick and Jenny Tolman, would be able to perform during the newly scheduled dates.

All previously purchased tickets and camping options will be honored at the festival’s newly scheduled dates.
