Weird City Hip-Hop Fest cancelled

The second go-round of Austin’s dedicated hip-hop festival has been cancelled. The cancellation was announced on the event’s Facebook page this morning.

From Facebook:

Well guys, the news is true. Due to unforeseen scheduling conflicts and lower than expected ticket sales this year, we have made the extremely difficult decision to cancel this year’s festival. All tickets purchased to the event will be refunded immediately.

Much love to everyone who supported not only us, but to anyone who supports Texas hip hop as a whole. We believe in the amazing force of this scene, and while this year’s cancellation is definitely a disappointment, this is NOT THE END of Weird City Fest. Not by a long shot.

We love you all. Stay tuned for the future.
