Pns: The Bengal Foundation on Sunday cancelled its classical music festival 2017, due to the unavailability of its venue, Army Stadium.

Bengal Foundation Chairman Abul Khaer Litu made the announcement through a media brief at the Hotel Westin Dhaka this afternoon.

The press release said they applied for Army Stadium venue for the event, but on August 31, Army Sports Control Board (ASCB) denied the permission as a security concern due to the arrival of the Pope Francis to Bangladesh at that time.

The sixth Bengal Classical Music Festival was scheduled to be held from Nov 23 to Nov 27.
