Goldenvoice has pulled the plug on this year’s FYF Fest, the Los Angeles music festival that was to be headlined by Janet Jackson and Florence + the Machine.

Organizers announced Sunday on social media that they “felt unable to present an experience on par with the expectations of our loyal fans and the Los Angeles music community this year.” They added that they would be announcing “special local shows” in the near future, featuring some of the artists from the scrapped festival lineup.

According to Billboard, which first reported the news, the festival was canceled due to poor ticket sales. Representatives for the festival did not immediately respond to EW’s request for comment.

Janet Jackson, Florence + the Machine, and Future were set to headline this year’s July 21-22 festival. Owners of FYF Fest Goldenvoice and AEG shutdown the event just a month after its lineup was announced. Although there were still two-and-a-half months to go before the music festival, the organizers decided that this year’s event could not be salvaged. Goldenvoice is the same event producer behind California’s Coachella and New York City’s Panorama Music Festival.

Ticket buyers were told in an email that they will receive a refund as early as Monday, May 7th.
