KahBang Organizers Cancel Concerts 

Another disappointment for KahBang fans.

Organizers cancelled the music portion of the arts festival Thursday.

In an open letter, director Joshua Gass told fans that several setbacks in planning, including the loss of sponsors, made it difficult to stage the acts.

Indie rock artist St. Vincent and rapper DMX were scheduled to perform next Friday.

Concert goers who purchased their tickets through Ticketmaster can contact the company for a refund.

The Film Festival and free art displays will continue as planned.

Earlier this month, organizers announced the event was moving from Bangor to Portland.

Organizers said the sudden venue change was is due, in part, to poor ticket sales and trouble finding a space for concert goers to camp.

The city of Bangor officially terminated their contract with KahBang last week.
