Heavy rain and flooding in Texas have forced the cancellation of the final day of the Austin City Limits Music Festival.

The Austin area received between 5 and 11 inches of rain overnight, weather officials said, causing some flooding and forcing several low water crossings to be closed.

Organizers of the Austin City Limits Music Festival canceled the festival today at Zilker Park because of the weather.

Good news is that they’re refunding a third of the ticket price to music fans. Here’s the official announcement from the festival:
