Last night's flood-warning-triggering downpour has left the fields of Forest Park a bit soggy — especially the ones near the south gates of the LouFest Music Festival. To prevent festival-goers from drowning in quicksand, LouFest's organizers have announced that the southern entrance to the festival will be closed today.



D0314 is on site as well, recommending rain shoes for the wet fields:


The opening of the fest has also been pushed from 11 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. No word on whether this will effect the lineup — Sleepy Rubies is slated to play at 11:30 a.m., so they may make a late start.



In regards to the Uber drop-off location that was planned near the south gates, LouFest has said an announcement is forthcoming.
