Ideas for two major Ontario nation songs festivals are being sidelined this summertime due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Republic Dwell, organizer of the Boots & Hearts and Large Sky songs festivals, claims the 2020 editions have been scrapped as the virus “continues to be a hazard for all big-scale occasions.”

Boots & Hearts is a person of the province’s greatest songs festivals, and the lineup this yr provided Eric Church, Dan + Shay and pop singer Alessia Cara.
Organizers say Church has now dedicated to headlining following year’s version of the competition, which will operate from Aug. 5 to 8, 2021.
Passes for this year’s Boots & Hearts will be honoured following yr, and total refunds are “offered upon request for all ticket kinds.” Republic Dwell extra that Large Sky competition tickets are being instantly refunded to the purchasers.
