COVID-19 has caused another cancelation: Florida Georgia Line’s FGL Fest has been called off because of the pandemic.
The Indianapolis Motor Speedway announced that the upcoming Fourth of July NASCAR race weekend, will run without spectators.
President & CEO Mark Miles said, “While we certainly worked diligently to run our events with spectators, we reached a point where we needed to make a final decision because the race weekend is less than a month away. Today it’s not possible to be confident that Indianapolis will be at Stage 5 of the state’s reopening plan by the Fourth of July weekend.”
As part of this decision, the music festival that was to feature Florida Georgia Line on July 4 at the legendary race track is canceled. Fans who have purchased tickets to FGL Fest will have the option to receive credit to a future IMS event or a refund, and IMS will contact them directly.
The inaugural FGL Fest was also canceled in September of 2018 due to severe weather just hours before artists including FGL, Cole Swindell and RaeLynn were to take the stage.
