Columbia was set to have its first-ever Lollapalooza from September 17 to 18. However, festival organizers have unfortunately announced that the event is not going to happen anymore. The festival’s headliner, which has yet to be announced, pulled out of it just prior to the full lineup announcement, and there was not enough time to find a replacement.

The festival’s lineup included Lana Del Rey, Disclosure, Wiz Khalifa, Anderson .Paak, Esperanza Spalding, Wild Nothing and others. Tickets are currently being refunded.
