2024 Lovers & Friends Fest canceled just hours before it was set to start due to high winds forecast

Today’s Las Vegas’ throwback R&B / hip-hop festival Lovers & Friends has been canceled due to forecasted high winds. The announcement came at just after midnight on Saturday morning:

Saturday’s Lovers & Friends Festival at the Las Vegas Festival Grounds has been canceled. Lovers & Friends Festival organizers have been monitoring the weather for several days and proactively preparing for a windy Saturday. However, the National Weather Service has now issued a High Wind Warning, including dangerous 30-35 mph sustained winds with gusts potentially more than 60 mph. Following advice from the National Weather Service and in consultation with local public officials, we must make the safest decision for our fans, artists, and staff, and cancel tomorrow’s Lovers & Friends Festival. This was an incredibly heartbreaking decision to make as we are aware that fans have traveled from all over the world to enjoy this incredible lineup of superstars and have been looking forward to this event for several months. We’ve worked hard to create an amazing event for you, and we are just as disappointed as you are.

The lineup for 2024 Lovers & Friends was set to feature Usher, Janet Jackson, Backstreet Boys, Lil Wayne, Snoop Dogg, Gwen Stefani, Nas, Alicia Keys, Nelly Furtado, Ludacris, and more.

When We Were Young cancelled day one of its 2022 edition at the same venue for the same reason (high winds).
