It’s the running joke in the electronic music world that Monxx cancels a ton of shows. It’s come to the point where everyone’s wondering: “Why do people still book him?” After his recent cancellation in Milkwaukee, which he cancelled on BEFORE… River Beats decided to compile a recent list of shows he’s cancelled.
The craziest part? All of these cancellations are within a one-year time frame.
Updated on October 4, 2018.
Shows Monxx cancelled:
High Caliber Music Festival: Apparently, Monxx did not feel safe attending this festival due to “negative online backlash” and pulled out last minute. He made no official announcement about this cancellation. Plus, we received no other info besides the screenshot of the email made by his manager.
Lost Lands Music Festival – Okay, we’ll cut him some slack here. Due to weather, Excision informed Monxx that his set was cut. Excision cancelled on Monxx before Monxx cancelled on him (lol).
.@lost_lands have pulled me off the line up. I just landed in Ohio and I would of made it to my 5pm set like originally planned, sorry to everyone who this effects but this is out of my control pic.twitter.com/Xzd4jtW3AE

Lake Worth, Florida – Cancelled due to “food poisoning.” Later, he got caught posting on Snapchat enjoying some Jack Daniels and an entire lobster dinner. The show was supposed to begin at 8:00 PM.
Also, let’s take a gander at this tweet.

Miramar in Milwaukee, times 2 – Once due to a miscellaneous cause, and the other due to “getting assaulted at the airport.”

Monxx waits until the day of to cancel his shows in Detroit. At least the promoter was able to pull in another artist on the same level before the show
