The organisers behind the CMC Rocks country music festival in Queensland have announced today that the 2021 event will be postponed to 2022.

The organisers behind the CMC Rocks country music festival in Queensland have announced today that the 2021 event will be postponed to 2022, citing international travel restrictions from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

With over 21,000 tickets for the 2020 event sold and this year's event already postponed, the second year of cancellation will be a blow for the country music community looking for a return to normality. All tickets will be valid for the 2022 event.

In a statement on their website, organisers Potts Entertainment, Chugg Entertainment and Frontier Touring said:

"Two years without CMC Rocks, without Country Music’s best of the best playing on our stages, without seeing your faces, is not a scenario we ever thought we would be facing and we’re truly devastated. We want to thank everyone for their continued support, it really means a lot to us and we’re not just saying that. Until then, if you can, hold on to your tickets because we will be back, we will boot scoot around together and we will be making up for lost time."

For those unable to attend in 2022 full refunds will be issued via Moshtix.

CMC Rocks has been an important date on the Australian music calendar since 2013, beginning in Far North Queensland before heading to the Hunter Valley and then on to its home in South East Queensland. Bringing artists including The Dixie Chicks, Lady A, Alan Jackson, Toby Keith, Florida Georgia Line, Luke Bryan and Thomas Rhett to Australia, CMC Rocks has the reputation of being the most important international country music festival in Australia. With the CMC television channel coming to an end on Foxtel earlier this year, fans were excited to see that the festival would live on.

With the postponed 2020 event headlined by Kip Moore, Miranda Lambert and Morgan Evans, speculation is already beginning over who will be heading out for 2022.

For those looking for an alternative, several festivals have announced for 2021 with Australian lineups including Savannah In the Round in Far North Queensland next October.
