The promoters of Flambeau Fest have issued a statement concerning the potential weather event created by Tropical Storm Nate this weekend in south Louisiana.

'We are in contact with broadcast and private weather services regarding the disturbance in the Gulf of Mexico. Flambeau Fest is a rain or shine event. At this moment we are moving forward with the festival, and are keeping a very close eye on multiple tracking models. Currently there is still high uncertainty in modeled storm paths, intensity etc meanwhile we will update regularly and hope the festival continues without weather concerns. As always, the safety of our crew, artists, and festival goers is priority number one.'

Flambeau Fest will be held October 6th and 7th at Ascension Fields at Lamar Dixon in Gonzales. Tickets and VIP Passes are still available for both days..
