While C3 Presents controls a large portion of the Austin music scene, they do not, surprisingly, control the weather.
This morning, C3 released a statement cancelling Sunday's festivities because of flash flood warnings. What will happen to all of the flower crowns? Where will all of that beer go?
Shelby Meade, communications director for C3 and the promoter of ACL, said in a press release,“We regret having to cancel the show today, but safety always comes first.”
One-third of ticket prices will be refunded, but who knows if those of you who bought a wristband off of Craigslist will ever see that cash.
There was considerable rain and thunder overnight that kept me from sleeping, so I guess it is probably pretty muddy down at Zilker Park. Mud doesn't go with a maxi skirt and bikini top.
Weekend one goers are thanking the ACL gods for their luck. ACL shuttle drivers are doing a rain dance, so thankful they don't have to look at cut off shorts today. And Thom Yorke is probably really glad no one is peeing in a bottle waiting to see Atoms for Peace.
