A Sept. 16 anti-violence music festival at Guaranteed Rate Field featuring music stars Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Fifth Harmony, Prince Royce, DNCE, Fat Joe, Jeremih, Lupe Fiasco, Carl Thomas and Felix da Housecat has been cancelled, according to DNAInfo.com .
The festival was set to be produced by the Illinois Sports Facilities Authority, which controls Guaranteed Rate Field, and Get IN Chicago, an organization that counsels community-based groups and funds anti-violence initiatives.
Anthony J. O'Neill, CEO of the Illinois Sports Facilities Authority, said that the group wanted to do more community work and outreach before hosting the event. Now, a series of shows is planned for next year.
