DOVER, Del.- The second annual Big Barrel Country Music Festival, which had been slated to take place June 24-26, has been canceled. Organizers made the announcement Thursday on the festival's website and Facebook page

Last October, organizers said Brad Paisley, Sam Hunt and Eric Church were to headline the event which was to be held at The Woodlands at Dover International Speedway in Dover.

Organizers, who described as "difficult" their decision to cancel the event, said in their announcement, "We sincerely apologize to all the people this decision affects: the fans, artists, industry partners, venue, City of Dover and State of Delaware; all of whom welcomed us with open arms for our inaugural festival in 2015."

In their announcement, organizers did not offer a reason as to why they decided to cancel the festival.  

Ticket purchasers will automatically receive full refunds, including all service charges, beginning this Monday, Feb. 1, organizers said. For more information on refunds visit BigBarrel.com.
