|Country Thunder Music Festivals has had to make the decision to postpone its Forest City event due to the continuing uncertainty surrounding the Coronavirus Pandemic. The Iowa State Of Emergency Proclamation, which is in effect through the end of the month at the very least, bans mass gatherings of more than 10 people. Its guidelines mirror those of neighboring states.
“We look forward to the rescheduled dates in Iowa and getting ready for what we know will be an outstanding Iowa debut for our festival,” says Country Thunder CEO, Troy Vollhoffer. “We have always strived for excellence when it comes to the fan experience. Any great festival begins with fan safety and the comfort of patrons who attend our events.
“We felt that pushing our dates to September gives us the best opportunity in making Country Thunder Iowa a world-class event. Given the challenges we have all faced in recent weeks, we’re expecting an Iowa Labor Day weekend like no other. Luckily for us, our artists were more than happy to oblige the schedule changes.”
Originally scheduled from June 12-14, Country Thunder Iowa 2020 will now take place from September 4-6, again at Winnebago Park in Forest City. Headliners Lynyrd Skynyrd, as part of its 50th Anniversary Last Of The Street Survivors tour, superstar Kane Brown and supergroup Old Dominion have all been re-confirmed for the new dates.
They will be joined by country legends Big & Rich, Clay Walker, Lonestar, red-hot hitmakers Mitchell Tenpenny and Meghan Patrick, and the hard-driving, country trio, Cadillac Three, among many others!
