Tweeting out photos of the park looking like it did after flooding forced FPSF's relocation to NRG Park in 2015 and 2016, FPSF officials said they and the City of Houston had reached a mutual agreement to cancel.
FPSF organizers said refunds of up to 50 percent of the base FPSF ticket price would be available within the next 7-10 days for those using a credit card. Those paying cash at the box office are urged to contact support.frontgatetickets.com within the next 30 days. (FPSF wristband and photo ID are required for cash refund.)
Earlier today, they had been posting weather updates on the fest's Twitter feed ("keep your ponchos handy"), and urging festival-goers to seek shelter in the parking garages to the east and west of the FPSF gates. The delay would last at least an hour, they added.
Sunday's evacuation was announced at approximately 2:38 p.m. Shortly after 4 p.m., the National Weather Service issued a Flash Flood Warning for four southeast Texas counties, including Harris. FPSF reported heavy storms and lightning in the area as the evacuation remained in effect.
Heavy storms & lightning are in the area. We are continuing to monitor the weather. Updates posted here, the app & https://t.co/YYxkkE4xY1— FPSF (@fpsf) June 4, 2017
