In a heartfelt statement released on the Levitation website, festival organizers announced the cancellation of the 2016 festival, due to "dangerous weather." Levitation staff wrote that the oncoming storm is expected to bring rain, hail and high waters to the Austin ranch that was to serve as the festival fairgrounds. Tornado warnings have also been issued.
Ticket refunds will be available.

Read the full statement below:
We have tried every avenue to continue with the festival, and the county has been working with us to find a way, but today at 5:00pm the final decision was made to cancel the festival due to public safety concerns related to severe weather. Following this announcement, the festival has to evacuate the site, meaning that staff and equipment must be loaded out. This leaves us with no opportunity to continue the festival later in the weekend. Even if the weather has improved drastically on Sunday, we would be unable to produce an event at the ranch.
We will be working to keep everyone updated. Please see information on refunds, potential venue shows and other important info below.
