The Hudson Project, the music festival that took place in Saugerties, NY on July 11th to July 13th decided to cancel the final evening of the festival’s events due to inclement weather. Some fas were extremely pissed off. How would you have felt if you paid to buy tickets and to travel to Saugerties and this happened?
As a sidenote, to make everything worse, it was also reported that were a ton of dogs and cops at the festival. Reportedly, there were dozens of drug related arrests.
Here’s the letter they sent out to attendees about Sunday night:
Based on the recommendation from Ulster County and information from the National Weather Service concerning approaching storms in conjunction with the previous afternoon inclement weather, we have decided to cancel this evening’s performances.
This is a decision that we don’t take lightly, but our first priority is always the safety of our patrons, artists, and staff. We regret having to cancel any show, but safety always comes first.
Please return to your camp sites to pack up and depart the property as quickly as possible. You do not need to leave if you are not sober, we are not asking anyone to drive drunk. If you are unable to leave the venue for any reason, please stay in your vehicles until the storm passes or you can depart safely. Those who are not in the condition to drive may stay the night to sober up. We do not recommend driving if you are under the influence at all. Thanks for your cooperation.
Thank you all for an unforgettable weekend, we can’t wait to do it all again next year. Stay tuned for more information in the coming days.
