(Cedar Rapids, IA) – The Roundup – Cedar Rapids Tastiest Music Festival, originally scheduled for June 25 – 27th at the McGrath Amphitheatre, has been postponed until June 24 – 26, 2021. Ticket holders are in the process of being notified and should hold onto their original tickets as they will be valid for the new dates.
VenuWorks, the management company that oversees operations and booking for the McGrath Amphitheatre, announced a revamped format for the popular summer festival last month, previously known as the BBQ Roundup. Previously announced headliners for The Roundup including Pure Prairie League, Orleans, Men without Hats and Flock of Seagulls are expected to play the rescheduled dates next summer. Local favorites Surf Zombies have also been confirmed for the new dates.
“The health and safety of our guests and employees is always the number one priority,” said Michael Silva, executive director of VenuWorks. “It is not easy to reschedule such a large event that has such a big impact on the local economy. Local businesses depend on our events to draw traffic downtown. With the on-going COVID-19 health crisis, postponing this popular summer event until large crowds can gather safely again is the right thing to do.”
Guests should contact the U.S. Cellular Center ticket office with questions. Guests are encouraged to check the McGrath Amphitheatre Facebook page and CREventsLive.com for current updates on events. The ticket office is currently experiencing higher than normal call volumes and patience is appreciated.
