Photos: Rainfall doesn't spook away Voodoo Music Experience crowds _lowres

Advocate Photo by VERONICA DOMINACH-- Festival-goers watch Jane's Addiction from afar during the 2015 Voodoo Music + Arts Experience at City Park in New Orleans, La. Saturday, Oct. 31, 2015.

The final day of the 2015 Voodoo Music + Arts Experience was cancelled due to “dangerous weather conditions,” spokesman Victor Trevino announced Sunday morning.

Forecasters with The National Weather Service predicted two inches of rain throughout the day and a flash flood warning in the metro New Orleans area, expected to stay in effect until 6 p.m.

High rainfall rates and thunderstorms started Saturday evening in southeast Louisiana and made for a wet Halloween evening. Up to six inches of rain has fallen throughout the area since then, according to The National Weather Service.

“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,” Trevino said in the release.

More than 20 bands were expected to play Voodoo Fest on Sunday, including headliners Deadmau5, Third Eye Blind and The Cult.

Voodoo has described itself as a “no refund, rain or shine event,” but Trevino said the producers would refund ticketholders for the full price of Sunday’s ticket.

Those who bought 3-day credentials would get a refund of one-third the ticket price, he said.

The National Weather Service predicted a 100 percent chance of rain during the daytime on Sunday, with a high of 76 degrees.

“High rainfall rates could lead to ponding of water in low lying areas and areas of poor drainage,” the release said.
