The Country2Country Festival in the United Kingdom and Ireland was one of the first major events to be postponed in 2020 due to Covid-19 concerns, with promoters making their announcement on March 12th just before it was set to begin. With infection rates now spreading uncontrollably in the United States and positive cases spiking again in the U.K., C2C has made the decision to postpone its festival another year until March 11th through 13th, 2022.

“In March of 2020, we could never have foreseen the extent of what has unfolded and the prospect that we would be without C2C for 2 years was unthinkable,” festival organizers wrote on Wednesday, citing “current restrictions on mass gatherings and international travel” as their reasoning. “We are devastated that we are unable to deliver you the event that we all love.”
