Vampire Weekend - New York's Music To Know Festival Axed
A New York music festival set to feature indie rockers Vampire Weekend and Bright Eyes has been cancelled.
The Mtk: Music To Know event on Long Island was due to be held on 13 and 14 August (11) but it's been scrapped due to poor ticket sales.
A statement from organisers reads, "Despite our unique vision and arranging a world-class lineup, ticket sales were not adequate to allow the event to continue."
Former child stars-turned-fashion moguls Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen had also signed up to run a pop-up boutique on site.
