The inaugural Oceans Calling Festival has been scrapped under threat of heavy rainfall from Hurricane Ian. Co-founded by O.A.R. and C3 Presents, the event was supposed to start tomorrow (Friday, September 30) and run through Sunday, October 2 at the Ocean City Inlet in Ocean City, Maryland.

“Due to unsafe weather conditions on the Oceans Calling Festival grounds caused by Hurricane Ian and additional severe weather conditions forecasted for the rest of the weekend, we have made the difficult and heartbreaking decision to cancel this weekend’s Oceans Calling Festival,” noted Oceans Calling organizers in an announcement. “We hoped for a better outcome and are disappointed to share this news, however, the safety of our fans, artists and staff is our top priority.”

O.A.R., Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds, The Lumineers and Alanis Morissette were slated to headline the three-day music festival. Other acts on the lineup included Dirty Heads, Cage The Elephant, Cyndi Lauper, Logic, Grouplove, Skip Marley and more. Ticketing provider Front Gate Tickets will issue full refunds within a month.
