The show won’t go on.
A month before it was scheduled to take place, Post Malone’s third annual Posty Fest has been canceled. The two-day event was scheduled to be held Oct. 30-31 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Tex., but “logistical issues” have forced it to move to 2022.
“Due to logistical issues impacting the production of the festival, Posty Fest is rescheduling to 2022,” a rep for Live Nation told Variety. “Refunds available at point of purchase. We can’t wait to make 2022 our biggest year yet. Stay safe everyone, we’ll see you soon.”

Sources tell Variety that festival organizers faced challenges implementing COVID-19 protocols in Texas, which has looser protocols than most states, and decided it was best to postpone to next year.
The star-studded lineup was announced earlier this month. In addition to Post, performers included Megan Thee Stallion, Lil Uzi Vert, Roddy Ricch, Jack Harlow, Polo G, Rod Wave, Tyga, Flo Milli, and more.
The event was also called off in 2020 due to the pandemic. Launched in 2018, Posty Fest has featured superstar performances from Travis Scott, Pharrell, Tyler, the Creator, Meek Mill, Rae Sremmurd, Doja Cat, and more.
