Fans and music lovers of Sun City Music Festival will be disappointed to learn that the Sun City Music Festival has been cancelled this year.

Earlier this afternoon, Sun City Music Festival announced across all their social media platforms that this year the show was not happening.

The following was posted on their Facebook page:

It reads:

Dear Sun City Music Festival family, supporters, and partners,

Each year, the Disco and SMG teams work diligently to ensure every single time you enter the gates of Sun City Music Festival, the best possible experience awaits you. Throughout the calendar year, the SCMF team works extremely hard to meet this momentous task with rigorous standards in place.

Unfortunately, we don’t believe that goal can be accomplished in 2018. As a result, we’re sad to say Sun City Music Festival will not be held this Labor Day Weekend. We apologize the announcement took so long, but we wanted to make sure we had exhausted all the options to make SCMF possible.

On behalf of the entire SCMF family, we hope to return in 2019 and greatly appreciate all of your support over the past years. Thanks for the memories that will last a lifetime!

We’re unsure as to why exactly they couldn’t follow through with the festival but kudos to their team for being honest and fessing up and not just go through with the motions of putting on a lackluster show and not live up to the expectations of their fans, so much respect.

For the last 8 years Sun City Music Festival has hosted performers such as Marshmello, David Guetta, Skrillex, The Chainsmokers, Hardwell, and Arminn Van Buuren to name just a few.  Hopefully, the team behind Sun City Music Festival will be ready to blow our minds come 2019. The show was slated for September 2 & 3rd at Ascarate Park.
