The organizer of Atlanta’s Music Midtown, which draws tens of thousands of people to Piedmont Park every September, announced Monday that this year’s festival has been canceled for “circumstances beyond our control.”

The two-day outdoor concert series that started in 1994 takes place about a mile northeast of downtown and is one of the city’s largest cultural events. This year’s event, which had been slated for Sep 17-18, included Jack White, Fall Out Boy and Future as headliners.

“A sad day as Atlanta’s @MusicMidtown is canceled,” Atlanta City Council President Doug Shipman tweeted Monday.

Event organizers did not immediately respond to specify why the festival was cancelled.

Jack White performs during Music Midtown 2014 at Piedmont Park on Friday, Sep.  19, 2014, in Atlanta.
