The Voodoo Music + Arts Experience, the three-day New Orleans festival, has cancelled its final day due to inclement weather.

"Due to dangerous weather conditions including forecasted persistent rain and flash flood warnings for Orleans Parish for Sunday, November 1, the final day of the 2015 Voodoo Music + Arts Experience has been cancelled," reads an official press release. "Fan safety is the top priority for the producers of the festival and current conditions at City Park do not meet our standards for maintaining a safe experience."

The release continues, "While Voodoo is a no refund, rain or shine event, producers will make refunds available this year given the severe weather conditions. For 3-Day credentials holders, 1/3 of posted price at time of purchase will be refunded. For Single Day credential holders who purchased for Sunday, November 1, a full refund will be offered. Fans should visit for further information regarding refunds. Everyone at Voodoo 2015 wants to thank all the music fans that came to City Park to experience the first incredible two days of stellar performances. We look forward to seeing everyone again at the 2016 Voodoo Music + Arts Experience."

Nasty weather hampered Voodoo on Saturday (Oct. 31), as hard rain fell upon New Orleans' City Park beginning at roughly 5:00 PM CT. However, all of the scheduled performances did go on, as headliner Ozzy Osbourne thanked the crowd for weathering the rain and mud during his set.

The weather report on Sunday called for more rain and possible thunderstorms. Scheduled performers on Sunday included deadmau5Zac Brown BandChance The Rapper and Third Eye Blind, among others.
