Mamby On The Beach cancelled due to endangered bird's nest
Mamby On The Beach Festival has been cancelled. The two-day Elelctronic and Hip Hop event was cancelled due to circumstances beyond the organizer's control, as they announced last Friday.
The festival was due to take place next August, 23-24 and promised artists such as Brockhampton
, Flying Lotus
, Sylvan Esso
, Troye Sivan
, Virtual Self
, Quinn XCII
, Justin Martin
and many others. The reason for the cancellation is simple. The festival is off due to the presence of endangered birds.Mamby On The Beach
was set to take place on Montrose Beach, in Chicago, the same place where a pair of Great Lakes Piping Plover shorebirds deicded to make their home. This is the first time over 60 years that these Plover chicks have hatched in Chicago.
The festival organizers have not succeeded to encounter an alternative. They have stated: "Despite working tirelessly with the Chicago Park District and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services to find a new location, moving the festival at this late a date, while still providing a superior beach event experience, would be impossible and a disservice to fans and artists alike."
