The CMA Fest has just issued a rule that will ban all Confederate flag imagery at its event.

The Country Music Association Festival is an annual event that attracts over 50,000 in Nashville each year.

Organizers for the vent said it would enact a ban on the Confederate flag to eliminate any discrimination against concertgoers.

Bans on the Confederate flag have become quite popular in the last two years, last year NASCAR banned fans from flying the flag too.

 

Fox News had more on the story:

The CMA Fest is joining other musical festivals in banning all imagery related to the Confederate flag for this year’s event.

The four-day event in Nashville, which starts on June 9, lists “Confederate flag imagery of any kind,” under its list of prohibited items and activities.

After a two-year hiatus because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the annual festival that began in 1972 will return to Nashville. The festival regularly attracts about 50,000 country music fans.

The Country Music Association told The Tennessean that the decision to enact a ban on Confederate flag imagery this year was based on protecting the personal safety of fans and preventing discrimination.

“This year’s CMA Fest is our first major fan-facing event in nearly three years,” the statement said. “We have always had policies in place that protect the safety of our fans and ban discrimination, but we felt it was important to further refine our language to explicitly outline what will and will not be tolerated.”
