Coastline Festival with Flaming Lips and Young the Giant Is Canceled!

Oh, man. We hate delivering bad news. But sometimes, there's no way around it.

We just got word that this year's Coastline Music Festival is being canceled.

The new fest that featured craft beers and food trucks received our Best Local Music Festival in 2014. But Pompano Beach Amphitheatre will be silent this February 22 and the show scheduled for St. Pete on February 21 is also a no-go.

And the lineup was pretty cool. I mean, we almost had Wayne Coyne coming to town, and possibly without Miley.

And besides the Flaming Lips, Young the Giant, Tove Lo, Airborne Toxic Event, Echosmith, The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger, Misterwives, Knox Hamilton, and the Colourist won't be coming to town.

The official word from organizers is below with information on getting money back on your purchased tickets.

We regretfully must announce that Coastline Festival on February 21st in St. Pete. and February 22nd in Pompano Beach has been cancelled. All ticket purchasers will be refunded from point of purchase. If you purchased your ticket through Ticketmaster this will automatically be credited to your account within 5 business days.
