The 26 annual Basilica Block Party that was scheduled to take place on July 10 and 11 has been canceled. 

According to a release, the festival has brought together festival-goers, volunteers, partners, sponsors and vendors for 25 years. Minneapolis' largest music festival has become a staple of summer in Minnesota.

"It's hard to imagine a summer without (it)," the release says. 

Refunds are available at point of purchase, all tickets purchased online or through the Etix call center with a credit or debit card will be refunded automatically, however due to high volumes refunds should expect to see a refund within 20 business days.
