The crowd endures the rain at the Le Plur stage on Oct. 31 at the 2015 Voodoo Music + Arts Experience.
Rain has overwhelmed City Park this Halloween weekend
— and the ongoing rough weather has forced organizers of the 2015 Voodoo Music + Arts Experience
to cancel the festival's final day, Sunday, Nov. 1. Here's the statement from the festival:
Due to dangerous weather conditions including forecasted persistent rain and flash flood warnings for Orleans Parish for Sunday, November 1, the final day of the 2015 Voodoo Music + Arts Experience has been canceled. Fan safety is the top priority for the producers of the festival and current conditions at City Park do not meet our standards for maintaining a safe experience.
Organizers will offer full refunds to Sunday's ticketholders, and three-day pass holders will receive one-third of the posted price at time of purchase. Information on refunds is available on the Voodoo website
. Organizers told Gambit
that despite the bad weather, turnout this weekend was strong, and they're looking forward to next year's event.
