This year’s TomorrowWorld music festival has ended in disaster due to poor weather conditions and an apparent lack of planning by organizers.
Thousands of attendees with day passes were left stranded on Saturday night in Chattahoochee Hills, Georgia after shuttle buses failed to show up. As a result, many fans were forced to walk home and sleep on the side of the road.
The troubles didn’t end there; on the next morning, hundreds of attendees who paid extra to spend the weekend at the festival found themselves at a mud-soaked campground. Those with day passes or VIP tickets were barred from entering.
“We had to get out,” festival-goer Tony Nguyen told Maxim. “It was a disaster. The tents were leaking and the floor was nothing but mud. On Sunday morning, we had to walk three miles off the campground and to civilization with all of our luggage, completely drenched. All of the festival employees were completely confused and unhelpful.”

When reached for comment by Maxim, festival officials said:
“Today, Sunday September 27, TomorrowWorld will be accessible only to visitors currently camping onsite at DreamVille. We take the safety of all of our visitors very seriously. The rainfall since Thursday resulted in limited capacity of festival parking fields, drop-off locations, and the shuttle system. Festival-goers with day tickets, guest list tickets, and anyone not already camping at DreamVille will unfortunately not be able to access today’s events. Food and entertainment will be provided for the visitors already situated in DreamVille. The refund policy for affected visitors will be announced as soon as possible.”
