(AllHipHop News) Atlanta was set to host the Afropunk Festival this weekend, but the event has been canceled due to weather concerns. According to organizers, site operations have been greatly impeded due to heavy rains throughout the week.
“Safety is always the #1 concern for any of our festivals, nothing is more important,” states festival founder Matthew Morgan. “Over the course of the past 10 years of Afropunk’s existence, there has never been a serious injury on site and we plan to keep it that way with this tough decision to cancel the fest. We’re looking forward to Afropunk Atlanta 2016.”
All of the approximately 10,000 plus ticket holders will automatically be refunded at point of purchase.
