Torrential rain, wind, and hail have descended on northwest Arkansas for the past few days, putting to the test the mettle of music fans, many of whom trekked from far to visit picturesque Mulberry Mountain.
On Thursday night Galactic had to cancel their set – and the same thing happened to them Friday, according to the band’s Twitter account.
And here’s the latest string from the official Wakarusa Twitter page.
@wakarusafest today’s lineup? WSP still confirmed? 1hr away and want to make sure we can park w/out getting stuck!
“Mother Nature has put on a significant and impressive display over the first 3 days of Wakarusa at Mullberry Mountain, Arkansas. Wakarusa Festival, celebrating it 10th anniversary, has taken many significant blows from the numerous storms that have moved thru the region. Only because of the undeniable dedication, skill, and spirit of the staff, artists and crowd – the festival
continues on for the final two days all be it dampened but not diminished. All sets and stages for Saturday and Sunday are expected to occur as planned at this point. Tickets sales for the event have been suspended since Thursday and remain suspended because of the extreme conditions created by the storms.
“Wakarusa wished to thank the spectacular assistance and leadership provided by the various local and state agencies and friends of the event in making a very challenging situation manageable.”
