David Guetta, Jung Kook (of BTS), and Thirty Seconds to Mars were scheduled to play at the annual event.
According to the organisers, they are acting with “an abundance of caution for the thousands of employees. This also includes crew members, artists, fans, and partners who travel from all corners of the world to bring the show to life.”
