The Lockn’ organizers have officially announced that all Thursday performances at the music festival have been cancelled, due to a severe thunderstorm that caused damage to the festival’s parking and campground area Wednesday evening.

It is now scheduled to open “first thing” Friday morning, according to organizers who are also offering places campers can stay until the festival opens:

They say River Ridge Mall has plenty of parking and restaurants at 3405 Candlers Mountain Road. Attendees are welcome to stay overnight in the parking lot of the James River Conference Center at 400 Court Street and, as well as at the Hillcats Stadium at 3176 Fort Avenue.

“Despite the inconvenience the storm has caused, we count ourselves lucky that everyone is safe and that we have three great days of music ahead of us,” organizers wrote in a press release. “We look forward to seeing you soon.”
