The organizers of NYC’s Governors Ball Music Festival have cancelled the third and final day due to “severe weather and a high likelihood of lightning in the area.” Earlier this morning, the fest announced that door times would be delayed and urged fans not to come to Randall’s Island Park until the situation was assessed and a further updated provided. Today’s scheduled performers included Kanye West, Death Cab For Cutie, Courtney Barnett, Chvrches, Two Door Cinema Club, Vince Staples, and the Rage Against The Machine/Public Enemy/Cypress Hill supergroup Prophets Of Rage. All ticketholders will receive a refund, with three-day pass holders to receive a pro-rated refund. Find more information regarding the cancellation and refund policy here.
