Underwood, Dan and Shay, ZBB to Play Wildwood Beach, Aug 2021
With a nod from New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, the Barefoot Country Music Festival has bobbed and weaved it's way to a 4-day festival now scheduled for the Wildwood Beach in August of 2021.
Organizers say they checked in with the New Jersey Governor and got his blessing to proceed with planning the event that was originally scheduled for the summer of 2020.
Because of the pandemic, the festival was postponed until June 2021. A second postponement,though, only pushes the festival ahead for two months, with the new dates announced as August 19- 22, 2021.
The idea of August was discussed with Governor Murphy and officials in Wildwood, with the thought being the Covid-19 vaccine will have been widely distributed by summer, with "things returning to normal."
With the new dates comes announcement of three of four "headliners" for the four day event. Those headliners include Carrie Underwood, Dan + Shay, and the Zac Brown Band. A 4th headliner, for Thursday night, along with other artists are expected to be announced in the coming months.
Tickets originally purchased for the 2020 fest will be honored, with more tickets on sale.
