Osceola County Announcement Results In Country Thunder Florida Postponement Amid Covid–19 Concerns – Festival Announces New Dates For Mid-October
Country Thunder Music Festivals has had to make the difficult decision to postpone its first event of the 2020 season due to the uncertainty surrounding the Coronavirus Pandemic.
The final decision came down following Friday afternoon’s announcement from Osceola County officials which bans mass gatherings of over 250 people. The guidelines mirror those of neighbouring Orange County, as well as the city of Orlando.
“We look forward to the rescheduled dates in Florida and getting back to see some of the greatest country fans in America,” says Country Thunder CEO, Troy Vollhoffer. “We have always strived for excellence when it comes to the fan experience. But there has always been an acute awareness that a great music festival begins with fan safety, and the comfort of patrons who attend our events.”
“We felt that pushing our dates to the fall gives us the best opportunity in making Country Thunder Florida the world-class event which fans have come to expect. Luckily for us, our artists were more than happy to oblige the schedule changes.”
Originally scheduled from March 27-29, Country Thunder Florida 2020 will now take place from October 16-18, again at Osceola Heritage Park in Kissimmee. Headliners Eric Church, Kane Brown and Dierks Bentley have all been re-confirmed for the new dates.
All ticketing and camping options will be honoured for the rescheduled dates.
Country Thunder Music Festivals would like to thank its fans, corporate partners and media sponsors for their unparalleled support – we look forward to seeing you all in October.
