The second day of Bali’s Sunny Side Up Festival, for which Halsey was headlining, has been called off amid the ongoing Lombok earthquake tragedy that has killed 381 and counting, and has devastated the northern part of the Indonesian island.

Event organizers made the announcement on Thursday, citing “unforeseeable circumstances” and “recent tragic events in Lombok” in their decision to cancel the event, set for August 12.

Halsey’s show, however, will be rescheduled for a future date, according to Sunny Side Up’s statement. Ticket holders will be getting a full refund, they say.

Sunny Side Up is a boutique festival held at the trendy Potato Head Beach Club in Bali’s Petitenget. Founded in 2014, the festival has brought big music acts like Mark Ronson, Disclosure, Ellie Goulding, and Flight Facilities to the stage in the past.

Day one of the 2018 edition of the festival went down on July 21, featuring Nick Murphy, Moon Boots, Basenji, amongst other acts.
