A music festival in the capital city has been canceled “due to unforeseen circumstances.”

Citizens all around the Jackson metro area were excited for the inaugural JXN Fest, which was supposed to take place at Buddy Butts Park from May 27-29. However, the organizers recently posted a statement on Facebook, saying that they have been forced to cancel the festival.

“Ultimately, in part due to the climate of today’s times, we feel like putting on JXN Fest would present too many situations that have the potential to do damage to not only our community but also to our city and state,” organizers wrote, adding that they have faced security concerns.

The announcement comes less than three weeks after a mass shooting took place at the Mudbug Festival in Jackson.

JXN Fest was set to feature Rodney Atkins, Big K.R.I.T., Lucky Daye, Dear Silas, The Weeks, and more.
