Hip-hop festival Rock the Bells has canceled its two-day D.C. show at RFK Stadium this weekend, according to the Washington City Paper. Wale, Girl Talk, Wu-Tang Clan, Kendrick Lamar and Kid Cudi were some of the headliners scheduled to appear for the event.
Interestingly, Rock The Bell’s East Ruthford, New Jersey show the following weekend has also been canceled.
We will post more details as we hear them.
Update: The festival’s promoter, Guerilla Union, announced via a press release that the D.C. and NJ stops were canceled due to “a lack of ticket sales”, noting that “the financial loss would have been devastating”.
