Moon and stars - bad weather

Quick question....have concerts ever been cancelled at Moon and Stars due to bad weather?

I'm in Ascona and it's been raining since last night.....and I mean really chucking it down with lightening forecast for tonight as well.

In fact mete had a dangerous weather warning because of the rain...do just wondering if the organisers had called off gigs in the past and any idea on how I would find out before I get there by bus???

Thanks

Re: Moon and stars - bad weather

I don't recall if they've canceled in the past, I've certainly been there in the pouring rain!

They are giving some warnings about the weather on Rete3, especially for Sopra Ceneri (which means Locarno), and mentioned something about a landslide in or near Ascona (yesterday, I think).

Peak bad weather should be starting now, they said. Heavy rain and intense thunderstorms.

Can't find any info on their site.

Thanks Tom

I can definitely verify that the bad weather has really come in - thunder and lightening just started 30 secs ago, and cannot see anything beyond the flat we are in which, yesterday, had great views of the lake, the valley and the suburbs of Locarno.

Don't mind outing rain but it's really bouncing down!

Will keep an eye on the website before we head off...91 chfs is too much to dip out of the concert.

Re: Moon and stars - bad weather

Well decided to go and though it was chucking it down while the Wailers were on, it dried up for most of Jack Johnson's set which was superb but there I was with my clear waterproof poncho.

Crowd looked like a ghosts convention all swaying to the music with clear waterproofs on...very spooky

Highlight was two male streakers walking nonchalantly through the crowd having a general chat until security caught up with them.

Can you guess what was the only thing Security had to dress them in when caught???? Yes a clear waterproof each..sort of defeated the object of covering them up!
