The organisers of multi-act indie music event Hostess Club Weekender announced the gig's cancellation on Wednesday, three days before it was due to take place at Infinite Studios on Saturday.
In an e-mail to Life!, as well as on a post on Facebook, Japan-based organisers Hostess Asia wrote that the reason was "unforeseen, last minute technical issues that cannot be resolved in time for the shows to proceed".
A spokesman declined to give more details about the technical issues or how many tickets have been sold far.
Announced on May 1, the gig would have featured a line-up that included acclaimed indie names like American singer-songwriter Cat Power and New York trio Blonde Redhead.
The other acts on the bill were American singer-songwriter Perfume Genius, British electronic songwriter Sohn and British psychedelic rock quintet Toy.
According to the gig's ticketing agency, EventCliQue, those who have purchased tickets will receive e-mails on how they can get back their full refunds.
