UPDATE: The Festival Of Colors has removed the tag from their Facebook post, that links to the official Oliver Anthony Page.

7News has reached out to The Festival Of Colors, again for a statement but has yet to hear back.

7News also originally reached out to the Oliver Anthony Camp for a statement and have yet to hear back from them even after receiving a “contract” from The Festival Of Colors stating that Oliver Anthony was coming to the event.


The Festival of Colors says they just got a big name to play their last-ever event.

On Facebook, The Festival of Colors said Oliver Anthony will be performing at the event.

Oliver Anthony recently went viral with his number-one hit song “Rich Men North of Richmond.”
