Montreal's Inaugural LASSO Festival Pushed To 2021


The inaugural LASSO country music festival in Montreal has been corraled until 2021 due to COVID-19, promoters announced Thursday.

Luke Bryan and Brad Paisley, who were set to headline on Aug. 14 and 15, have confirmed they will be there Aug. 13 and 14, 2021 instead.

When it was announced last June, LASSO was described as “an urban country music jamboree” (the original Aug. 15-16 dates were later changed to Aug. 14-15) designed to meet the demand for country shows in the Quebec market.

"We were so thrilled to be creating a new festival experience for country fans,” said evenko's Nick Farkas, in a release. “We had so much great feedback from the fans about this first lineup, so it makes us very happy to be able to come back next year with the same headliners, and a whole lot of nice surprises!"

Fans who purchased passes are being encouraged to hold on to them and claim a $50 gift card valid on the festival grounds. Refunds are also available to those who prefer.

The LASSO announcement comes a day after health officials in California said Stagecoach will not be permitted this October. Other country music festivals in Canada, including Cavendish Beach and Boots and Hearts have also been postponed until next summer.
