Following the cancellation of the final day (Sunday, July 13) of THE HUDSON PROJECT, festival organizers MCP Presents and SFX Entertainment have announced that they will offer refunds to all festival-goers. Those who purchased Sunday single-day tickets will receive a full refund, a 50% refund will be given to anyone who bought two-day passes and a 33.3% refund will be offered to three-day ticket buyers. Additional details will be available later this week via the website and social media on how to obtain refunds.
Based on recommendations from Ulster County emergency services and the Health Department, THE HUDSON PROJECT was safely evacuated Sunday afternoon at 4:45 PM (ET) and the festival was ultimately cancelled at 8:00 PM (ET). Both the evacuation and cancellation were based on warnings from the National Weather Service (NWS) and under the direction of Ulster County officials and local authorities due to severe weather in the area and specifically flooding at the festival site.
In the months leading up to the event, festival promoters worked tirelessly with New York State, Ulster County and Saugerties town officials to develop an emergency plan, including a contingency for weather evacuations. As of Monday (July 14) at 6:00 PM all festival-goers were safely off the festival site.
