The Fun Fun Fun Fest crowds were kept waiting Saturday while organizers walked the venue with Austin’s Parks Department, making sure that the grounds were dry enough, according to Jennifer Sinski from Giant Noise, the festival promoter.
While people waited in line, their badges were scanned so that they could enter immediately once the gates opened. In addition, they were offered snacks and water while in line.
The doors opened around 1:10, which affected the comedy schedule; acts were slated to begin performing at 12:20 p.m.
As a result, all acts prior to Sandbox with Rob Gagnon at 1:35 have been cancelled. That show will go on as planned and the rest of the Yellow Tent schedule should remain the same, barring unforeseen circumstances.
Promoters recommend that fest-goers download the Fun Fun Fun Fest app for the most current information.
