LCD Soundsystem-Curated Beach Vibes Fest Canceled
The LCD Soundsystem-curated Beach Vibes Festival on Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula has been canceled. In a statement posted on the event's site, organizers of the event slated for Jan. 26-28 in Riviera Maya said it 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."
In June it was announced that the reunited LCD was slated to play two headlining sets alongside such EDM and hip-hop acts as Carl Craig, Hot Chip, Holy Ghost!, Poolside, Horse Meat Disco, Museum of Love, Eric Duncan, Shit Robot, Tim Sweeney, Felix Dickinson, Lovefingers, DJ Harvey, The Black Madonna, Juan Maclean and Run the Jewels. Fans who purchased all-inclusive packages from CID Presents will get a full refund.
CID Presents has a list of other band-focused events coming up in 2017, including a Jan. 13-15 get-away on the Riviera Maya with Phish, a Crash My Playa with Luke Bryan (Jan. 19-22), a Mad Decent Beach Party (Feb. 16-19) and three shows on the beach with Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds (Feb. 23-25).
A spokesperson for LCD Soundsystem could not be reached for further comment at press time; Billboard has also reached out to CID for further comment.
