ATLANTA — Another Atlanta music festival is postponing their event.
The 404 Festival announced on social media Monday afternoon that it has “made the conscious decision to pause this year’s 404 Festival to explore options that will allow our fans to celebrate the community inclusion, growth, and appreciation of the City of Atlanta.”
“While every step was taken to responsibly host the event, a certain level of community sentiment ultimately led to the decision,” the festival said in a post.
Last week, Music Midtown announced, “Due to circumstances beyond our control, Music Midtown will no longer be taking place this year.”
Channel 2 Action News learned that Music Midtown was likely canceled because a local man may be challenging public events that stop people from carrying weapons in public places.

The 404 Festival was set to take place this weekend at Pratt Pullman Yards, and Atlanta rapper Big Boi was set to headline.
“Ticket holders and vendors will be automatically refunded. A refund will be processed in 7-10 business days,” the festival said. “We look forward to coming back even stronger in 2023.”
