After suspending performances just before 6 p.m., the Hudson Project announced the event would not resume due to inclement weather.
The announcement prompted widespread disappointment among fans of Sunday headliner Bassnectar, as well as comparisons to other festivals that were undeterred by torrential downpours.
No official notice has been released by police or fire officials, but the reason for the cancellation is likely more rain and lightning in the forecast later tonight.
Fans, fuming from their tents and cars, took to Twitter to voice their displeasure.

Others were more understanding.
That’s so horrible. Don’t blame #HudsonProject… They can’t control the weather.

The festival may have been a bust for Sunday ticketholders, but those who attended previous nights had a much different take.
