The cancellation comes just as this year's summer festival season begins.

One of the most F.O.M.O inducing festivals that takes place each year, FYF Fest has today been axed for it's 2018 instalment.

Los Angeles-based promoter Goldenvoice said in a statement Sunday that its staff "felt unable to present an experience on par with the expectations of our loyal fans and the Los Angeles music community". Additionally, ticket buyers will automatically receive refunds, including service charges, starting today.

However, despite Yacoubian's idea of the women-led lineup, the Los Angeles Times makes a good point that FYF didn't exactly brand itself as a must-see event in 2018. The cancellation message also promised the announcement of "special local shows soon, featuring some of the awesome artists from the 2018 lineup".

Along with the headliners, Future, The xx and The Internet were among the 40-plus artist who were scheduled to appear. Last month saw ticket sales dwindle, leading the organizers to cancel the event with nearly three months to go.

FYF Fest was created by Sean Carlson and made its debut in 2004.

The news was announced with a message on the festival's official Twitter account. It is not clear if the festival will return next year. But after sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior by Carlson was made public a year ago, Goldenvoice chose to buy out Carlson's share and have Jenn Yacoubian take over.
