Maryland’s Harborfest 2009 and Los Angeles’ Detour Festival are off the calendar this year, with the former blaming a hurricane while the latter blames … something.

National Harbor Harborfest, a yearly festival located south of Washington, D.C., was scheduled to take place Saturday. But worries about Hurricane Bill caused organizers to pull the plug on this year’s event featuring by Lifehouse, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic and Candlebox.

According to the National Hurricane Center, Hurricane Bill, recently upped to category 4 status, is currently about 1100 miles south-southeast of Bermuda but is moving in a northwest direction toward the U.S. coastline.

The “LA Weekly Detour Music Festival,” an event that usually happens in early October, won’t rock Los Angeles this year. Saying the daylong event is going on “hiatus,” LA Weekly isn’t exactly saying why the festival won’t take place this year, but the media outlet does give music fans several reasons to choose from.

“Call it festival fatigue,” writes Randall Roberts in LA Weekly’s Off the Record news. “Blame the economy, the industry, the biz, the Powers That Be, the health care system, or the glut of afternoon-into-evening music events.”

    The weather in DC isn't supposed to be that bad this weekend, I suspect poor ticket sales.  Keep in mind The Romantics/Survivor, Judas Priest and Mötley Crüe are playing shows the same night.

    Too bad about the Detour fest. I went to the first one a few years back and it was awesome. Well organized and great bands. I hope they try again next year.
