Back in June, it was announced that the reunited LCD Soundsystem were curating an event called the Beach Vibes festival. The festival was set to feature two headlining sets from the band, in addition to performances from Run the Jewels, Holy Ghost!, and Hot Chip. The festivities were scheduled to take place on January 26-28 at Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula.
Well, the wait is over because the festival has been canceled. The festival’s homepage now features a statement explaining the festival’s demise, saying that the “event was not coming together in the way that it was envisioned.” The statement also says that fans who bought the “all-inclusive packages” will be refunded in full. Read the note in full below.
Beach Vibes, a destination event produced by CID Presents, has been canceled. The event was originally slated for January 27 – 29, 2017 in Riviera Maya, Mexico.
The event was not coming together in the way that it was envisioned, and all parties have agreed that putting on an event that is less than 100% would be a disservice to the fans and bands alike. Therefore, canceling the weekend-long event is in the best interest of all involved.
Fans who purchased all-inclusive packages will be refunded in full, including related airfare expenses, and will receive direct communication from CID Presents in the coming days.
