The highly-anticipated Taste of Fort Collins music festival faced multiple weather delays on Saturday, causing frustration among attendees eagerly awaiting performances. The festival, organized by Townsquare Media, encountered severe thunderstorm warnings, prompting gates to close and reopen intermittently throughout the day.

Last year, a similar weather-related incident led to the cancellation of a headline performance by hip-hop artist Lil Jon. Despite backlash, the festival, known for its ‘rain or shine’ policy, did not issue refunds to disappointed ticket holders. The Coloradoan had reported on this controversial decision.

On Saturday, as dark clouds loomed over Fort Collins, festival organizers advised patrons to remain vigilant of weather alerts and changing conditions. The National Weather Service had issued a severe thunderstorm watch for the region, warning of potentially damaging hail, strong wind gusts, and lightning hazards.

Amidst the uncertainty, festival-goers received updates via text alerts, with scheduled performers like X set to take the stage later in the evening. The event’s strict no-refund policy was emphasized, reiterating the commitment to hosting the festival regardless of weather challenges.

As attendees sought shelter from the impending storm, the Taste of Fort Collins team continuously monitored the situation, ensuring the safety of all participants. Despite setbacks, the festival’s spirit remained resilient, with the community eagerly anticipating the musical acts and culinary delights yet to come.
