Just hours before the formal start of the event, the 2021 Rebel Rock festival has been canceled. Organizers of the Orlando, Florida fest have issued the following statement:

"We are deeply and utterly devastated to announce the cancellation of this weekend's Rebel Rock Festival.

"After this week's severe weather and despite our crew's effort to improve the ground conditions around the Main Stage over the last three days, our venue partner has deemed the area unfit for artists, crews, vendors, and fans. We were able to get in the Taco Metal Party on Thursday by using the B-Main grounds while continuing to work on the conditions of the Main Stage grounds. The amount of water dropped this week simply proved to be too much to clear to provide you a safe festival environment and experience. We can't tell you how heartbreaking it is to see two years of work be tackled by mother nature.

"We'll share more information about refunds as soon as possible."

The four-day event has been scheduled to feature Sevendust, Five Finger Death Punch, Underoath, Incubus, All That Remains, Knocked Loose, Motionless In White, Hatebreed, and Killswitch Engage, among many others.
