Start Of Wakarusa Postponed As Weather Looms
The threat of severe weather has led to the postponement of the start of the outdoor Wakarusa Music Festival on Mulberry Mountain in the Ozarks.
The Southwest Times reports that an estimated 15,000 in attendance sought shelter in their vehicles Thursday because of lightning and wind.
Festival director Brett Mosiman told the newspaper he doesn't know when the festival will resume - but said it will continue.
The festival runs through Sunday and headliners include Widespread Panic, The Black Crowes, Of Monsters and Men and the rapper Snoop Lion, formerly known as Snoop Dogg.
