Things didn't look good for Thursday's Identity Festival date at Miami's Bayfront Park as soon as the threats of Hurricane Irene started rolling in early last week. The roving Skullcandy-supported electronic music festival featuring a wealth of DJs and electronic music acts, was postponed, but there was still a glimmer of hope that an announcement of a rescheduled date would come today.
And it's here! The festival is saved, and you might even want to bring a hoodie for the new date.
From Live Nation:
The IDentity Festival presented by Skull Candy show originally scheduled for August
25th at the Klipsch Amphitheatre at Bayfront Park in Miami will now be held on Friday,
September 30th. Tickets for the original date will be honored at the door.
Original tickets that were issued for the Miami show and redeemed at the Tampa
date on Wednesday, August 24th are no longer valid for the new Miami show date on
Tickets for the rescheduled show on Friday, September 30th will be available
tomorrow (Tuesday, August 30th) at 10 am at LiveNation.com, Ticketmaster
or charge by phone 800-745-3000.
* All dates, acts and ticket prices are subject to change without notice.
Remains to be seen how many of the acts are going to be subject to that change, given that this date is three weeks after the conclusion of the rest of the tour. For now:
Identity Festival: With Kaskade, Steve Aoki, White Shadow, Pretty
Lights, Rusko, and others. 1 p.m. Thursday, August 25, at Klipsch
