The inaugural Asian edition of Rolling Loud in Hong Kong has been canceled due to security concerns. The hip-hop festival with a roster that included Wiz Khalifa, Migos, Playboi Carti, Lil Skies and more was slated for October 19-20.

A statement posted on the event’s Instagram account announced that the volatile nature of the ongoing street protests made it impossible to ensure the safety of attendees at Art Park in the West Kowloon cultural district. “After consulting with security experts, it has been determined that it is not possible to organize the upcoming Rolling Loud Hong Kong edition as we had hoped without endangering the safety of our fans, artists and staff.” The danger in question stems from China’s Communist Government’s attacks on Hong Kong residents who are resisting the removal and erosion of their most basic of Civil Rights.

All tickets for the gathering will be refunded in full through the organization’s ticketing platform within 45 business days. The event was also slated to feature sets from $uicideboy$, Sup Music, Night Lovell, Danny Towers, Pact, Ski Mask the Slump God, Go$h, Smokepurpp, Robb Bank$ and more. See the full explanation of cancellation below.
