Updated, June 3: According to a new Facebook event page, you can catch a free Daft Punk Tribute DJ set by The Feels tonight, June 3, beginning at 10 p.m. in the House of Blues Foundation Room. "Although Bulladora is not involved with tonight's event, we hope you will go and have a great time and dance our any frustrations of Bulladora's cancellation," the post says.
Bulladora Music Experience, which was set to debut June 4-5 at Reverchon Park with headliners Yeasayer and AlunaGeorge, has been canceled.
A press release stated, "The City of Dallas Park and Recreation Department canceled Bulladora's reservation of Reverchon Park. The department stated the cancellation was due to recent rainfall and upcoming forecasted rain."
Celia Barshop, a senior park manager in Park and Recreation Department, confirmed the cancellation.
"It was a very difficult decision. I can tell you we thought long and hard about it and were hoping the water would recede. But when we looked at it yesterday, it was standing water. And there was going to be a lot of electronics for a movie screen on Friday and the music on Saturday, and we couldn't figure out a way from an event standpoint to cover enough of the turf to make it safe. That's why we had to cancel it. We hate to have to cancel events. But it was for safety. And the park would have been destroyed."
Bulladora says that all tickets will be refunded through ticketing sources.
