This year’s Cruel World festival unexpectedly turned into a two-day event over the weekend.
Toward the end of the festival’s originally scheduled day on Saturday, the venue was evacuated on account of “unsafe weather conditions and lightning strikes in the area.” Iggy Pop‘s performance was cut short, while Siouxsie‘s headlining set, which was set to mark the Siouxsie and the Banshees frontwoman’s first U.S. performance in 15 years, was canceled.
Luckily, organizers were able to reschedule full Siouxsie and Iggy sets for Sunday at the same venue.
Prior to the evacuation, Cruel World featured sets from Love and Rockets, Echo & the Bunnymen and Billy Idol.
Those who bought Cruel World tickets but could not attend the Sunday makeup show can receive partial refunds.
