Festival 404 Reports Event on “Some Level of Community Feeling”
ATLANTA — Another Atlanta music festival is postponing its event.
The 404 Festival announced Monday afternoon on social media that it had “made the conscious decision to suspend this year’s 404 Festival to explore options that will allow our fans to celebrate inclusion, growth and appreciation of the City of Atlanta community”.
“While every step was taken to run the event responsibly, some level of community feeling ultimately drove the decision,” the festival said in a post.
Last week, Music Midtown announced, “Due to circumstances beyond our control, Music Midtown will no longer be taking place this year.”
Channel 2 Action News learned that the festival was likely canceled because a local man may be challenging public events that prevent people from carrying guns in public places.
The 404 festival was scheduled to take place this weekend at Pratt Pullman Yards, and Atlanta rapper Big Boi was set to headline.
“Ticket holders and sellers will be automatically refunded. A refund will be processed in 7-10 business days,” the festival said. “We look forward to coming back even stronger in 2023.”
