The New York City concerts for David Lynch's Festival of Disruption have been canceled, according to a message on the festival's website. The shows slated for May 17 and May 18 at Brooklyn Steel will no longer happen, while a previously scheduled screening of Mulholland Drive at Music Hall of Williamsburg will go on as planned on May 18.

Garbage, Wye Oak and Phoebe Bridgers were among the artists slated to perform. The festival cited "circumstances beyond our control" for the cancellation and promised refunds.

"If you purchased a 3-event pass you will receive a refund for the price of the two performances plus fees on your credit card statement in 7-10 business days," the statement reads. "Your original ticket to the screening will still be valid at Music Hall of Williamsburg. We sincerely appreciate the kind and generous artists who offered to donate their time and talent. We also thank you all for buying tickets and for your enthusiasm in support of the charitable mission. All ticket buyers will be entered into a lottery to win a host of items autographed by David Lynch, including an Eraserhead movie poster, the vinyl LP of the soundtrack from Twin Peaks: The Return and his book Catching the Big Fish."

Refunds are available to fans via point of purchase, and AXS.com and AXS Phone Order refunds will automatically be processed.
