Inclement weather in the New York area has forced beloved jam festival Mountain Jam to cancel all remaining performances for today’s schedule. The same weather that caused Governors Ball to cancel their entire Sunday lineup has caused Mountain Jam to make the same decision, as “severe weather” will make the performances unsafe.A handful of musicians had yet to perform at Mountain Jam, including Brandi Carlile, Third World, and The Avett Brothers. You can see the full statement from Mountain Jam, addressing refunds and more information, below.To Our 2016 Mountain Jam Attendees,We regret to announce that the remainder of Sunday, June 5th, at Mountain Jam 2016 has been cancelled, due to severe weather in the area. We are devastated to make this decision, but the safety of our fans, artists and crew always comes first.We need to evacuate the festival grounds immediately. We strongly advise you to leave the venue. If you choose to stay, please take shelter in your vehicles/RVs if they are immediately accessible, or in the Learning Center, Healey Brothers Hall or the Hunter Mountain Base Lodge. Please do not take shelter in your tent – it is not safe. Festival staff and police will inform you when it is safe to remove your tents/belongings from the mountain.All customers who purchased either a Sunday or multi-day ticket directly through the Mountain Jam website will receive a partial refund (including fees and shipping, if applicable).
