The 2021 edition of Country Thunder Saskatchewan, scheduled for July 8-11, has been postponed to next year.
Below is the full statement from Country Thunder Saskatchewan:
A message for our fans:
In accordance with ongoing dialogue with public health officials and the provincial government; and the continued uncertainty surrounding the border closure, Country Thunder Saskatchewan is making plans to return to the Craven Valley next July 15-17, 2022.
“This is not the news that our fans want to hear or the news that we wanted to deliver,” says Country Thunder Saskatchewan CEO, and Regina native, Troy Vollhoffer. “But, as we have learned, and given these extenuating circumstances, the decision-making process is completely out of our hands.”
“Saskatchewan is home to many of us – we can only thank those fans for their ongoing support and make a promise for the biggest and best festival possible in 2022.”
The uncertainty for large-scale, festival-size gatherings, effective Covid 19 protocols which would ensure fan safety, and ongoing border and travel restrictions are just a few major challenges for music festival events which typically take well over a year of planning.
All tickets will be automatically honoured for 2022. Hold on to your tickets and Country Thunder will keep you updated.
