Rockin' River Music Fest has been cancelled following the latest provincial government guidelines, according to a statement on the festival's website.

"We are reaching out to you to announce that the Rockin’ River Music Fest will not be able take place this summer, in accordance with the latest government guidelines. We are shifting our focus to bringing you the best show ever in 2021 for our usual BC Day long weekend on July 29 to Aug. 1, 2021," according to the statement.

Last week, provincial medical health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry said realistically, no large events will be held this summer and she urged British Columbians to "think small" for gatherings like weddings and other events.

Customers who have already purchased their tickets have two options: they can receive a full refund, or can save their tickets for the 2021 Merritt event, according to the website.

Country star Keith Urban was set to headline this year's festival.

More information can be found on the festival's website.
