PHOENIX (AP) — A Phoenix music festival that was to feature artists including The Chainsmokers and Imagine Dragons has been canceled.
Organizers of October’s three-day Lost Lake Festival announced the news on the event’s social media platforms Friday afternoon.
Superfly, a company known for coordinating music festivals around the U.S., did not give an explanation behind the “difficult decision.”
People who already purchased tickets have been promised automatic full refunds, including processing fees.
