Country music festivals are as much a part of summer as the beach and baseball, but keeping track of them can be a chore! This festival guide will surely help you in 2020.

Over a dozen well-known festivals begin early in the year and run through December, featuring A-list artists like Jason AldeanChris Stapleton, Thomas Rhett and Luke Bryan. Miranda Lambert will appear often, as will hot newcomers like Brett Young, Dustin Lynch and Kane Brown. Dan + Shay is another with several headlining slots in 2020, and you'll find Dierks Bentley virtually everywhere.

This list of country music festivals is being updated in real time to reflect changes caused by coronavirus concerns. In March, Stagecoach in Indio, Calif. became the first to postpone. The annual festival will now take place in late October.

Last year we were a part of four major festivals, including Hometown Rising in Kentucky.

A few festivals called it quits after 2019, but more are added, including a sixth Country Thunder Festival, this time in Iowa (it's the old Tree Town Festival). There is really no excuse if you're in the mood for live country music this spring, summer and fall. Go find some new friends a few new favorite acts at a country festival!
