Man have we had some great times over the years at the Common Ground Music Festival. Some of the biggest Country stars and acts in the world have graced the stage there at Adado Riverfront Park in downtown Lansing.

Remember Tim McGraw, Toby Keith, Eric Church (may have been the biggest show I've ever seen there and the lines for beer were incredible), Travis Tritt, Montgomery Gentry, Blake Shelton, Dwight Yoakam, Little Big Town...and more...way more. I know I'm missing a ton of great stars but you get the picture. Common Ground was one of the go-to, don't-miss events every year in Mid-Michigan.

But as has happened with so many things with COVID-19, the Common Ground Music Festival is now a victim of the pandemic. According to their Facebook page, Common Ground will not be happening this year at all. The festival has now been postponed until July 9th and 10th of next year. One artist, Blink-182 has been rescheduled for next year, but the folks who run Common Ground are currently trying to reschedule other artists to the new dates.

This is the first time in 21 years that there will be no Common Ground in Lansing. Hard to believe. If you had already purchased tickets for this year, they will still be valid for next year and you will be sent an email with instructions on how you can roll your tickets over, or even get a refund.

The event was to take place this year at Cooley Law School Stadium.
