Moonrise Festival just announced the concert will be cancelled due to a permit they could not obtain. The Festival was only three-weeks away from going on in downtown Baltimore. The official Facebook page of Moonrise released a statement several hours ago, which can be read below. Headliners for the concert included Pretty Lights, Avicii, STS9, Snoop Dogg (aka Snoop Lion), Boregore, Chuckie, and many more. The festival also announced that everyone who purchased a ticket will be refunded within five to seven business days. More information to come as more is announced...

"It is with a heavy heart that we regret to announce the cancellation of this year's Moonrise Festival. Although we have put everything we had into this event trying to make it happen we have hit a roadblock that we just cannot overcome as the final permit needed will not be approved.

We are devastated by what has happened but with just under 3 weeks out from this event we cannot move forward without this final permit. We want to both thank and apologize to the fans, the artists, all members of the media, and everyone else who have supported this event. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience. We have battled to keep this event alive and we are absolutely crushed by this turn of events.

Refunds can be received from directly from the Ticketfly webpage or through the outlet that you purchased your ticket from.

We are working on some alternative events in the area that will feature artists who were scheduled to perform on the festival. Please stand by for further information on these events as information confirms."
