Country Fest postponing music festival for 2 months

Country Fest

CADOTT, Wis. (WKBT) – Country Fest organizers, in guidance with local and state health authorities, have decided to postpone the event to August 13-15.

The country music festival was originally scheduled for June 25-27.

Organizers were able to retain all three of the 2020 headline performers, including Thomas Rhett, Dierks Bentley and Kane Brown for the August dates. The rest of the lineup is being finalized.

In the statement, organizers said, “It would be easier for us to postpone Country Fest 2020 to summer 2021. But we know how big of an economic impact Country Fest has on local businesses, partners, vendors, artists, and the Chippewa Valley community with all the employees we hire. The amazing support from our Fest family (you included!) is the reason we’re able to pull this off. We thank each and every one of you for your continued support!”

Tickets and campsites purchased for the June event will roll over to the August festival, they can be transferred to next year’s event, or purchasers may request a refund.

“Our goal is to get you these new August 2020 festival dates now, so you have plenty of time to update or change your plans. The Country Fest staff is following Wisconsin’s ‘Safer at Home’ order, so we need additional time to get measures in place to transfer/refund tickets correctly. We want to make this process as seamless as possible. PLEASE be patient with us! Within the next few weeks, every person that placed an order will receive an email from Country Fest ( ) with further instructions about the transfer/refund process.”

“Thank you for your understanding, support and patience as we work through this together!”
