Organizer Greg Drees made the announcement on KUOO radio Wednesday afternoon:

Okoboji Blue Water Festival announces Eric Burdon & The Animals cancellation 

"We just learned that the Headliner for the Saturday night concert, Eric Burdon and The Animals will not be coming.  It's kind of a disappointing report.  We don't know why, they just have informed us that they will not be here.  We have an agent working very hard to book a replacement act, so there will be a concert Saturday night, it just will not be Eric Burdon.  But, there'll be a fun concert, I know it will be a great group, and those people who have already received the VIP Golden Circle wrist bands for Eric Burdon, those will be good for the Saturday night concert."

The Okoboji Blue Water Festival is slated for August 11-12 at Preservation Plaza in Arnolds Park.
