LONDON (CelebrityAccess) – Arcadia London 2019 has been canceled, organizers have confirmed.

The event, which has long been a staple of Glastonbury, debuted in the city last year following the festival’s announcement of a fallow year in 2018.

Organizers had planned to stage Arcadia at London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park once again this upcoming May 4-5, however, have now opted to cancel this year’s festivities fearing they will not be able to hit their projected targets.

In a statement released earlier this week, Arcadia’s organizers said: “After planning for last year’s Arcadia 10th anniversary event to be a one-off celebration, we received such strong feedback that we hoped to creatively evolve the event for a second year with a host of innovative new performance elements.

“As we stand, we aren’t confident of hitting the targets that would allow us to develop that new experience and the pressures of a difficult market would risk serious knock on effects to Arcadia’s other commitments; especially Glastonbury. Taking these factors into consideration, it is with great regret that Arcadia London will not be going ahead in 2019.

“We’re sorry if we’ve let anyone down,” continues the statement. “We have made this decision now to minimise impact. The London festival has ceased to trade and we have spoken with all ticket outlets who will be processing refunds. Please contact the outlet through which you purchased your tickets if you have any specific questions.”

Previously announced artists scheduled to perform at Arcadia London 2019 include Metamorphosis, Helix, Jamie Jones, Radium, DJ EZ and more.

Despite the cancellation, organizers are still planning to take the Arcadia experience overseas – with 2019 tour dates expected to be announced soon.
