DANVILLE, Va. (WDBJ) - The star-studded first annual Blue Ridge Country Music Festival has been postponed due to COVID-19 concerns.

The three-day event was slated for October 1-3, but will now be May 13-15 in 2022. It is scheduled to be held at Danville’s Blue Ridge Amphitheater.

Already accounted-for tickets, parking, camping and lockers will be reserved for the 2022 dates.

According to the announcement to ticket holders, each order will receive a free three-day pass and free merchandise as a bonus as a thank you for support.

Further details can be found by visiting the event website.

Event organizers posted this statement:

“While unfortunately we did in fact have to postpone Blue Ridge Country Festival until May 2022, we wanted to address the biggest concern that we have seen which is why we waited to officially announce postponement when rumors began days ago. Simply put, when the postponement of an event occurs there are a lot of necessary channels that we must go through. We did not know until the evening of Friday September 24 that the festival would ultimately not be able to take place. Throughout the weekend, we did our best to communicate what was happening through the aforementioned channels so that we could quickly relay the news of the postponement to you. A huge priority for us was to be able to secure the artists for the new festival dates as well as potentially add artists and create an even bigger lineup. Thankfully, we were able to accomplish this.”
