Adventure In The Park has been cancelled due to the impending arrival of Hurricane Matthew along the East Coast.
The first-time festival was planned to be at FirstEnergy Park in Lakewood, NJ this weekend and was set to feature a diverse roster of acts including Logic, Lil Wayne, Yellow Claw and Alison Wonderland. However, being that Lakewood is located in Ocean County right near the shore, the town is at great risk of being directly in the path of Hurricane Matthew.
The township of Lakewood officially cancelled the event to protect “the safety of all adventurers and artists,” according to an online statement. The entire statement reads:
“Due to public safety concerns, the township of Lakewood New Jersey has officially cancelled Adventure In The Park 2016 as a result of the uncertainty of Hurricane Matthew’s impact on the Jersey Shore this Friday October 7th through Sunday October 9th.
We have spoken with town officials and it is in the communities best interest to prepare for what is approaching, due to previous historic hurricanes which have impacted the surrounding areas. Please be aware that this is solely for the safety of all adventurers and artists.
We are extremely sorry for any inconvenience this has caused anyone, and we are working diligently to make next year’s festival a much greater experience!
Full refunds will be available at your point of purchase. Those who purchased tickets online will receive an email from Ticketfly or Ticketmaster by the end of the day.”
