Organizers of New York’s The Meadows Music & Arts Festival, which for the past two years has taken place at Citi Field in Queens, have officially announced today that the festival will not take place this year, though they hope to bring it band in 2019.

After careful consideration, we have decided to take 2018 off and focus our efforts on returning in 2019,” a statement posted to the festival’s social media reads. The statement goes on to explain that The Meadows was meant to move to Queens’ Flushing Meadows Corona Park in its third year, but the organizers “were not able to obtain a workable multi-day permit for a 2018 festival in the park.”
