(AllHipHop News) There were a lot of people anticipating seeing Kanye West perform at this year’s Governor’s Ball.
Unfortunately, that won’t be the case today.
The festival’s administration recently announced that it will be canceling its third day due to severe weather and a high chance of lightning in the area.
The official statement is located here.
“Sunday, June 5th of Gov Ball 2016 has officially been cancelled, due to severe weather and a high likelihood of lightning in the area. The safety of fans, artists and crew always comes first.”
Those who purchased a Sunday ticket and/or transportation to the location will get a refund for the cancelled day.
There was a list of unique Hip-Hop acts that were supposed to take the stage today, including Vince Staples, Joey Bada$$, Vic Mensa, and Kanye.
The internet responded with disappointment of the cancellation in its normal fashion.
