Wakarusa’s Weather Woes

03:31 PM Friday 5/31/13 | |

Evidently the weatherman doesn’t like Wakarusa, the annual festival on Mulberry Mountain near Ozark, Ark.  Storms forced the postponement of the multi-day music and camping extravaganza’s Thursday kick-off.

The Southwest Times Record reports that bad weather, including “lightning and wind” forced approximately 15,000 festivalgoers to take shelter in their vehicles Thursday.

It appears as if Friday’s weather might be treating the festival a little better than the day before. At approximately 10 a.m. local time this morning, Wakarusa organizers tweeted “Mother Nature might be trying to punk us … but we will dance!”

But don’t go thinking Wakarusa has put its weather problems behind it.  While the National Weather Service is currently reporting a temperature of 88 degrees with “a few clouds,” for the Ozark area, it’s predicting severe thunderstorms for Friday night. Saturday has a 90 percent chance of thunderstorms followed by a partly cloudy evening.  Sunday is looking better with the NWS predicting sunny skies for the last day of Wakarusa 2013.

Thursday’s schedule was to include The Black Crowes, Yonder Mountain String Band, Galactic, and Calexico.  The weekend lineup includes Dispatch, Umphrey’s McGee, STS9 on Friday, Widespread Panic and Gogol Bordello on Saturday and Amon Tobin, Snoop Lion, and Rebelution on Sunday.
