12:01 PM Thursday 8/25/11 |   |

As further proof that outdoor music festivals and hurricanes rarely get along, one East Coast festival scheduled for this weekend has canceled while another postpones until next month.

With Hurricane Irene about to make landfall in the Carolinas before it moves north along the coast, the Silopanna Music Festival scheduled for Aug. 27 in Crownsville, Md., at the Anne Arundel County Fairgrounds, says it is no longer happening.

Festival organizers had to make a decision by early this morning and chose to side with caution over fun. Among the acts scheduled to appear were Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, Fitz & The Tantrums, Matt And Kim, Trombone Shorty & Oreans Avenue and Jimmie’s Chicken Shack.

“There are a lot of moving parts to a festival this large; bands are flying in from out of town, there are two days worth of stage & lighting to be built and crews are starting to pack up gear in support of the national bands,” Rams Head Group President Kyle Muehlhauser said in a statement announcing the cancellation. “Our biggest concern is the wind factor; we just didn’t want to risk having any issues with the stage.”

Refunds are available at points of purchase. For more information, click here for Silopanna’s Facebook home and here for the festival’s Twitter feed.

The Javelina Festival scheduled for this weekend at Francis Farm in Rehoboth, Mass., has pushed the clock back one month, and will now take place Sept. 30 through Oct. 1. Featuring roots music in the form of bluegrass, alt-country and folk, the festival had Hot Club Of Cowtown and Les Sampou among the acts on this weekend’s lineup.

Along with pushing the festival back one month, organizers announced that they will hold a “pre-hurricane” party tomorrow night featuring The Hoolios, Daphne Lee Martin, Highway Ghosts and Duncan Walters.
