LETSGETFR.EE FEST POSTPONED
The LETSGETFR.EE festival that was set August 20 & 21 at Queens' Flushing Meadows-Corona Park with Missy Elliott, Wizkid, Anderson .Paak, Ozuna and more, has been postponed to 2023. "The reason is complex, yet simple: The combination of the shifting dynamics of our industry, the inflation we’re all feeling and new safety regulations that were recently put in place would have forced us to greatly alter your experience to a smaller, watered-down, inauthentic version. And that simply wouldn’t be doing right by the vision, the ambition, our partners and most importantly, YOU." Read more here.
