South Korean music star Psy will not perform in Dubai, the organisers of the My Music X festival in March confirmed on Thursday. “Due to circumstances beyond its control and that of the performer, PSY will not be coming to Dubai to participate in the My Music X three-day music festival scheduled at the end of March.”

Psy had been announced as one of the top acts for the three-day festival and was due to perform at Atlantis The Palm on March 28. However, on February 31, days after the announcement was made, the singer himself tweeted that the concert was not on.

Organisers added in a statement on Thursday: “The My Music X event will however still feature a host of internationally renowned performers including Sean Paul, Akon, Eve and others at the headline My Music X concert on 28th March at Atlantis Dubai.”

Darrell Bell, My Music X Founding Partner said: “We are confident that the first My Music X will still offer the public and our partners an outstanding musical experience of a kind they have never experienced here in Dubai or the region before.

“The main artists, events, workshops, club nights and DJs My Music X has planned for Dubai are right on schedule and we will announce details of new and additional talent in the days ahead. Our three day event has already attracted some globally renowned performers and industry experts such as the world famous music producer Teddy Riley responsible for producing several Michael Jackson tracks.”
