The 2019 edition of Doctor Music Festival has been canceled. The organizers said in a statement that they were forced to make the tough decision due to the forced relocation of the festival earlier this year.

The Strokes, The Smashing Pumpkins, Greta Van Fleet, The Chemical Brothers, King Crimson and many more had been scheduled to perform during the festival.

After a 19-year hiatus, DMF's comeback was due to take place at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya in Montelmó from July 12 to 14.

"Canceling the comeback edition of Doctor Music Festival is among the toughest decisions of my promoter career," festival founder Neo Sala said. "At the same time, it is inevitable."

"The recent relocation of the festival has not been well-received by the public. Since the ACA (Catalan Agency d'Aigues) surprisingly ordered us to the DMF, we've seen a huge number of fans canceling their tickets," he added. "While sales for our new location in Montelmó have risen in recent weeks, we ultimately won't be able to offer the experience were striving for."

Sala promised that DMF will fully refund all tickets bought for the event. The refund process will start on June 21.
