Rock the Bells have cancelled their Washington, DC and New York City installments of the festival due to low ticket sales.

Rock the Bells' DC edition was set to take place this weekend, September 28 - 29, while the festival's New York installment was scheduled for October 4 -5. The East Coast festivals were the last in a four-stop series; Rock the Bells Los Angeles and San Francisco took place September 7 - 8 and September 14 - 15, respectively. Full refunds will be issued to those who purchased a pass for the weekend events.

This year marked the 10th anniversary of Rock the Bells, and Chang Weisberg, founder and owner of festival organizer Guerilla Union, stated the financial loss of producing the events would have been devastating.
