The C2C Festival in Dublin, London and Glasgow has been postponed after a government directive ordered the cancellation of all public events.

The Irish Government issued a directive to cancel all public events of a capacity of 100 people and over until Sunday, March 29.

"Due to the global pandemic of COVID-19 and the changing nature of travel policies in other countries alongside possible extended future restrictions, it is with regret that Country to Country Festival 2020 ... is being postponed," festival organizers shared in a statement.

They added, "Ticket holders are advised to hold onto their tickets. More information will be announced in the coming days on the rescheduled event. Thank you all for your understanding and patience at this very difficult time."

The 2020 C2C Festival was set to feature Tanya Tucker, Eric Church, Luke Combs, Runaway June and many more U.S. country artists playing three days of shows in Dublin, Ireland; London, England; and Glasgow, Scotland.

Last week, Old Dominion announced its withdrawal from C2C due to concerns about the coronavirus outbreak.

"We are so sorry to disappoint our fans overseas," the band said at the time. "However, with the growing uncertainty and unpredictable nature of the virus that is spreading throughout the world, the safety and security of our entire team is the top priority."
