Mamby on the Beach festival was scheduled to take over Montrose Beach in Chicago on Aug. 23 and 24, but due to "circumstances beyond our control," the festival has been canceled.   

In a statement posted to the festival's Twitter page, the "unforeseen issues include significantly higher than average waters of Lake Michigan eliminating the beach portion of our intended site. Additionally, our original footprint was affected by the presence of Great Lakes Piping Plover Shorebirds, a federally protected species."  


Festivalgoers will receive a refund on their tickets. The lineup was jam-packed with superstars including Troye Sivan, Brockhampton, T-Pain, A R I Z O N A, Sylvan Esso and many more.
