Heavy Rains Force Something Wicked's Sunday Cancellation

After the rains that forced the cancellation of Something Wicked's first day also soaked the Houston area into Sunday's overnight hours, the annual Halloween dance-music festival has decided to cancel today's activities as well. Promising to contact ticket holders about refunds tomorrow, organizers posted the following statement on the festival's Web site:

Something Wicked is disappointed to announce DAY 2 of Something Wicked 2015 is now canceled due to severe weather. The decision to cancel Day 2 adheres to numerous weather reports and warnings. Fan and employee safety are paramount.

Thank you for your understanding during these trying times. We will be in touch Monday with more details regarding refunds.

Our goal was to create, together with our fans, the best weekend of the year, and it pains us that we were not able to provide the Something Wicked experience.

Please stay safe this weekend.

Sincerely,
-The Something Wicked team
