Boots and Hearts music festival axed for second-straight year


Article content

Organizers of the Boots and Hearts country music festival are hanging up their boots again this summer, due to ongoing concerns with the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Due to continuing COVID-19 restrictions and our commitment to the safety of our fans, artists, staff, partners, and community, it will be another summer without Boots and Hearts Music Festival,” a release on their website read.

Taking place over three days in August at the Burl’s Creek Event Grounds in Oro-Medonte, Ont., Boots and Hearts has become one of the biggest festivals in Canada since its inception in 2012.

Republic Live announced that the festival will return on Aug. 4, 2022.

“Year after year, we promise you the party of the summer and as we continue planning for 2022, we know the long-awaited reunion of fans, artists, and the community of country music will be the best one yet,” they added. “To all the artists, we are getting ready for you.”

This year’s edition was slated to include performances by Eric Church and Dan + Shay.

Under current stay-at-home COVID restrictions, Ontarians can’t gather with people outside their immediate home.
