The Miami Beach Pop Festival was set to debut this November, however, the fest has been postponed.
Festival organizers released a statement earlier this week noting that “due to unforeseen circumstances, the continuation of the original plan is no longer viable.”
“Producers of Miami Beach Pop Festival will be working with all involved parties to secure a new date in the future,” the statement reads. “The lineup will change, as some performers may be unable to accommodate a rescheduled date.
“To our supporters and ticket buyers, artists, and the hundreds of people who have worked tirelessly behind the scenes for almost three years to bring this event to life, we thank you. We especially want to thank the City of Miami Beach for its continued support.”
Ticketholders who purchased tickets from the festival site can expect to see refunds within seven business days from October 8 on their credit card or bank statement, while others should reach out for a refund via point of purchase. Organizers apologized for the inconvenience on their site and said that they will be determining “the best path forward for the future of the event.”
The festival was set to take place from November 8 to 10 on the sands of Florida’s South Beach between 5th and 10th Streets. Hip-hop artists Chance The Rapper, T-Pain, and Sean Paul were going to perform, along with rock acts The Raconteurs, Leon Bridges, The Roots, and Nile Rigers and Chic, country artist Margo Price, and Latin stars Daddy Yankee, Juanes, and Rauw Alejandro. Newer, up-and-coming acts like indie-rock singer Maggie Rogers, pop singer Kim Petras, and soulful pop singer Quin XCII were also set to perform.
Paul Peck, who had helped curate Bonnaroo in the past and founded Florida’s Okeechobee Music and Arts Festival, was the co-founder of Miami Pops. At this time, a rescheduled date has not been announced.
