In a letter posted on the Riot Fest website, festival organizers write that this year's Denver festival is "simply not possible." The news follows the death of Riot Fest organizer Sean McKeough last December.
Riot Fest previously took place annually in three cities: Denver, Chicago and Toronto. The Toronto event did not take place last year. Chicago's event is still on for 2017.
