Voodoo Music + Arts Experience was delayed by one hour today due to heavy weather that rolled in last night. Strong winds and rains took over the grounds in the festival’s first day.
Today, an hour delay didn’t make too much of a difference, considering gates opened up at 1 PM instead of noon. However, the lineup was slightly affected by this.
Overnight, one of two 30-feet LED video walls fell down at the main stage. It reportedly was blown over Saturday morning before guests arrived on site.
In addition, Snails experienced technical difficulties during the storm, per his tweet below.
Tonight, Bassnectar, The Glitch Mob, ZHU, and more take the stage. See any schedule changes at www.voodoofestival.com.
