POSTPONED: Capella Country Music Festival


It is with a really heavy heart that we have been forced to postpone the Capella Country Music Festival until 2021.

Our Committee has decided that in light of the current crisis and for the protection of our Fans, Artists, Sponsors, Volunteers and our Community, that it is best to forego our festival in 2020 and to focus on delivering a cracker of an event in 2021.

We would particularly like to thank and acknowledge all of our Artists. These extraordinary people do so much for our country – especially in times of crisis. It is now the country music communities turn to return the favour to this industry by simply purchasing their CDs online, joining in on their online concerts and engaging with them via social media.

In addition we would also like to thank the amazing sponsors that offered to support us for the 2020 Festival. Many of these sponsors are Small Businesses who are the backbone of our economy and are also going to need our support during this tough time. We will be sharing all of their names and details with you shortly and we encourage you to use their services where you can and to offer an ear, should they need to talk.

We would also like to give a heart felt thank you to everyone who offered to volunteer at this years festival. We look forward to seeing you in 2021.

And last, but definitely not least … a big thank you to YOU! The country music fan and person reading this post. We simply couldn’t hold this event without you and we hope that you and your families stay safe during this tumultuous time. We will be issuing full refunds to everyone who has paid for their tickets to date, so please keep an eye on your accounts.

We look forward to seeing you again in 2021

A four-day country music extravaganza!
