It's official: Country Thunder Arizona has been postponed and will be rescheduled for sometime in the fall, the festival announced on Friday afternoon.

"Country Thunder Music Festivals has had to make the difficult decision to postpone Country Thunder Arizona due to the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 Pandemic. At this unprecedented time, everyone at Country Thunder Music Festivals remains concerned about our many loyal fans and hopes that everyone and their families stay safe through this crisis," a news release said.

The four-day country music festival was scheduled to take place on April 16-19, 2020 near Florence, Arizona. Country stars Dustin Lynch, Kane Brown, Luke Combs, and Eric Church had been tapped to headline.

Rescheduled dates would be announced in the "coming weeks," according to the news release. Tickets already purchased for the April festival would be honored at the new date, organizers said.

“We look forward to finalizing new dates and getting back to the desert later in the fall,” said Country Thunder CEO, Troy Vollhoffer, in a statement. “The fans in Arizona have been with us from day-one and we are incredibly grateful for their support as we work through the logistics of rescheduling."
