CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. (AP) - Organizers of the All Good Music Festival say they’re ending the multiple-day concerts in Jefferson County.

Organizers announced the festival’s end at Summit Point on their website www.allgoodfestival.com.

Organizers say other smaller events will still be held, including a “celebration of music, community and arts” on July 9-10 at Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland.

The festival debuted in 1997 and has been held in different communities. It has typically attracted tens of thousands of music fans, although police reported dozens of arrests last summer and one man died of an apparent drug overdose.

In 2011, when the festival was held near Masontown, a pickup truck went out of control and crashed into a tent filled with sleeping women, killing a South Carolina woman and severely injuring two friends.
