Reba can’t make Merritt festival this summer

No replacement named yet.

  • Jan. 17, 2011 2:00 p.m.

Active Mountain Entertainment has announced that Reba McEntire will not be performing at the 18th Anniversary of the Merritt Mountain Music Festival, scheculed for July 7-10 in Merritt, B.C.

Reba’s management informed Mountainfest organizers that, due to unforseen scheduling conflict, McEntire is forced to cancel this engagement, along with others.

Mountainfest was offered a Reba performance for the following weekend but the organisers decided against a change of date for the festival due to the large number of pre-bookings for the 2011 show.

Mountainfest president Claude Lelievre said: “Reba’s cancellation does not justify a change of date and the aggravation that it would create for the folks that have already booked their holiday time off.” He added: “We have solid offers on other very popular headliners that will be confirmed shortly.”

Reserved seats, general admission, camping and vip up-grade tickets are on sale now.

Early bird pricing is available through Monday, Feb. 28, while quantities last.

Early bird pricing applies to full event tickets only. Visit or call 1-877-569-7767 for tickets.
