NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess) — Organizers for Farmborough, New York's first major country music festival, have announced that the event has been canceled, just a week after tickets for the show went on sale.
The festival, produced by Live Nation and Founders Entertainment was slated to take place on June 17-19 at Randall’s Island Park in New York City, with a lineup that featured Toby Keith, Jason Aldean and Tim McGraw. It would have been the second year for the festival, which debuted in 2015.
In a post on the fest's website, organizers wrote:
"FarmBorough Festival will not return to Randall’s Island in June of 2016.
"All of us at FarmBorough Festival appreciate the support we have received, but conditions dictate that we redirect our energy at this time.
"We appreciate the opportunity you afforded us to present FarmBorough in New York City, and apologize for any inconvenience."
While event organizers did not reveal a reason for the cancellation, Randall's Island was announced earlier this year as the home for AEG's new Panorama festival, which takes place at the end of July. Founders Entertainment also produces the Governor's Ball Festival, which is slated to take place on Randall's Island in early June. – Staff Writers
