Attention all punk rockers, metal heads and hip-hop lovers: your annual head-banging, mosh-pitting autumn affair will not be coming to Toronto this September.

In a statement published on their website, organizers of Riot Fest announced that they would be axing the Toronto stop this year due to “local changes in Riot Fest’s partnership” in the city.

“While Riot Fest has fallen in love with Toronto and the province of Ontario because of all of the great music fans who have welcomed and supported us in these last few years, Riot Fest 2016 will only take place in Denver and Chicago.

Will all the plethora of EDM Festivals in Toronto follow suit?  Time will tell.  But Vegas seems to have fallen out of love with them already.

Lets hear your comments below!  Have Music Festivals run their course?
