The Nashional Music Festival, an inaugural all-genre music festival curated by Sam Hunt, has been canceled. Citing unforeseen circumstances, organizers announced the cancellation via a statement on the event’s website: “Although disappointed to share this news, we hope to find a future date to continue the prospect of a multi genre, inclusive festival for the city of Nashville.”
The two-day festival had been scheduled for April 20 and 21 at Nashville’s Bicentennial Mall State Park. In addition to curating and helping to organize the festival, Sam Hunt was set to headline the debut event. Fetty Wap, Brothers Osborne, Judah & the Lion, Lanco and Muscaline Bloodline were among the artists set to perform at the festival.
The event was intended to be a celebration of the Nashville community and the various genres of music that have grown within the city.
Refunds for the festival are available at the point of purchase.
Hunt has spent the past several months riding high from the success of his single “Body Like a Backroad,” one of the biggest country songs of 2017. The chart history-making song won Country Song of the Year at the 2018 iHeartRadio awards.
