AUSTIN, Texas -- Heavy rains throughout Central Texas flooded the area and caused the cancellation of Sunday s Austin City Limits Music Festival.

The promoter for ACL, C3 Productions, issued a statement on their website Sunday saying, Due to current weather conditions with flash flood warnings, The Austin City Limits Music Festival organizers have canceled the festival for Sunday, October 13.

C3 says the safety of festival goers was their top priority and that is what prompted the cancellation.

Our first priority is always the safety of our fans, staff and artists, said Shelby Meade, communications director for C3 Presents. We regret having to cancel the show today, but safety always comes first.

For those who paid a hefty price for their tickets, C3 says ticketholders will receive one-third of their ticket value back in way of a refund.
