SXSW and PARD have been assessing the conditions of Auditorium Shores and closely monitoring the weather. We are currently planning to delay gates until 4:00 p.m. based on current weather trends. Our opening acts – Hunter Sharpe and The Eastern Sea – are cancelled due to weather. The grounds were not damaged during last night’s events – they are still in good shape and it is priority to keep them that way.
