May 30[edit]

The bands listed below were scheduled for May 30, but none played that day. There was stormy weather and tornado-like activity in the area, and just before noon the park was evacuated due to a tornado spotted in the area. Many of the bands simply left without playing their sets. Moe., Keller Williams, Umphrey's McGee and others stayed in the area and went on with their sets on Monday, May 31. Many other fans were upset at the fact that no refund was ever promised, and even though they went home, several of the larger bands still played on Monday, May 31. Umphrey's McGee, in an effort to make it up to their fans, allowed free entry to a later show at the Canopy Club in Champaign, IL with a ticket stub from their unplayed latenight show.
