Following a very wet Saturday night, Governors Ball has officially announced the cancellation of day three of the festival. After holding gates indefinitely on Sunday morning, the festival released a statement at around noon: "Sunday, June 5th of Gov Ball 2016 has officially been cancelled, due to severe weather and a high likelihood of lightning in the area. The safety of fans, artists and crew always comes first. ... Stay tuned for more information, and please bear with us. We are just as devastated as you." The festival will be refunding money to Sunday ticket holders, as well as issuing prorated refunds to three-day pass holders.

Among the acts scheduled to perform during Sunday's installment of the fest were Kanye West, Death Cab for Cutie, CHVRCHES, Cold War Kids, Courtney Barnett, and Vince Staples. For a full list of acts, and more information, visit the Governors Ball website.
