JACKSONVILLE, Ore. — The first few shows of the 2020 Britt Festival summer concert series will be pushed back or canceled due to ongoing concerns over coronavirus, the organization announced on Friday.

With ongoing uncertainty on when the outbreak and resulting restrictions will end, Britt has decided to begin the festival in July. The first performance, Tanya Tucker, was originally scheduled for June 9.

"The first concert of the season will be the Best of Britt: Happy Together Tour on July 9. Britt is working with artists who were originally scheduled to perform in June, rescheduling concert dates to later in the season," Britt Fest said in a statement.

The Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals concert has been rescheduled to August 22. Britt says that it is optimistic about rescheduling the other artists originally slated for June, and is currently working closely with the artists to establish new dates — however, Tanya Tucker was unable to reschedule, and that show has been canceled.

Britt says it will inform ticketholders as soon as the new dates are confirmed.

"Tickets for rescheduled concerts will be valid on the new concert dates, so hold onto tickets that have already been purchased," the festival said. "If ticketholders are unable to attend rescheduled concerts or concerts are canceled, ticketholders will have the opportunity to receive credits toward another concert in 2020 or 2021, donate their tickets to Britt, or receive a refund."

Ticketholders must email or call the box office to request a credit, donation or refund: boxoffice@brittfest.org, 541-773-6077 or 1-800-882-7488.

A third announcement for Britt Fest's remaining 2020 concerts has been postponed, but will still happen virtually on May 8. Britt says it will begin the announcement at 6 p.m. with an online presentation on the festival's Facebook page and on the Britt Fest website.

"It is going to be a great Announcement with many of your favorite performers coming to the Hill this summer," Britt said.
