Miami’s UR1 Music Festival has been postponed due to “foreseeable inclement weather conditions” during the festival weekend and “continued effects of the recent Hurricane Sandy,” according to organizers (via Crossfade).

The festival’s inaugural edition was set for December 8th-9th at Bayfront Park and promised a lineup featuring Kanye West, Lou Reed, Animal Collective, and Jane’s Addiction, with support from Flying Lotus, Slash, Dead Can Dance, Zola Jesus, Tanlines, Peter Murphy, and more. It’s unclear how the festival’s lineup will be affected by the postponement.

A new date will be announced shortly, possibly as soon as next week, and ticket holders can either retain their current ticket for the new date or seek a refund. Ticket holders will also the opportunity to use their festival ticket at events around Miami during Basel week.

Aside from the long-running Ultra Music Festival and the beach-centric DeLuna Fest, Florida hasn’t had much luck with major music events of late. Langerdo was shelved not once but twice, Bang! never made it past year two, Orlando Calling pulled plug after just one year, and even the charity festival Harvest of Hope was forced to call it quits.

DeLuna will be next to pull the plug. The organizer is a crook.
