Detroit's Mo Pop music festival is the latest major even to fall victim to the novel coronavirus pandemic.

The two-day event, set for July 25-26 in a new home at Historic Fort Wayne, announced it was being canceled on Friday, May 15, "due to the ongoing uncertainty around the pandemic...Not being able to bring it to you this year breaks our hearts, but it is the right thing to do...Though it may seem early to make this difficult decision, this will allow us to get money back into your hands and turn our focus into 2021."

Mo Pop had announced its lineup during the early days of the pandemic, headlined by R&B/pop singer Khalid and British rock group The 1975, along with 19 others.

Mo Pop passholders will receive instructions about refunds on Monday, May 18, according to promoter AEG Presents. Those who purchased through the Elevate service will have options for a refund or to transfer theri passes to 2021.
