    ZepFest: not featuring Led Zeppelin.

    ZepFest -- planned for three days over May 27-29 -- isn't feeling a "Whole Lotta Love" right now. The PR rep behind the event confirmed to NBC Washington that the event indeed has been called off.

    "Some folks just like to see others fail - can't be helped, but we say Peace & Luv anyway," @ZepFest tweeted last Thursday in what might have been a sign of things to come.

    The festival had been advertised as bringing more than 50 bands, including tribute acts, plus "descendants, disciples and influences" to five stages at National Harbor. The website also said the "completely green" event would the feature "the largest collection of Zeppelin memorabilia ever assembled, 'secret' shows and surprise guests."

    Redskins' tight end Chris Cooley was also dubbed the "official tour manager" of the event.

    Almost sounded too good to be true, huh? 

    A three-day pass was $164.99; one-day passes ranged from $49.99 to $99.99. Those who have already purchased tickets can receive refunds from their place of purchase.
