Lost Lake Music Festival last year drew more than 45,000 fans to Steele Indian School Park in Phoenix. Ahead of this year’s version, organizers have announced they’re cancelling the event.

That follows the cancellation of other music festivals in the Valley — although some, like the McDowell Mountain Music Festival, have been going on for more than a decade.
