Friends of Nature Festival Falters, Cancels Matisyahu and Cafe Tacvba's Headlining Sets

On Saturday, Mother Nature was no friend to the inaugural Friends of Nature Music & Arts Festival as an almost Biblical downpour forced the cancelation of all acts -- including headliner Matisyahu -- scheduled to go on stage after 7 p.m., by order of the fire department.

On Sunday, though, despite the weather being free and clear of storms, headliner Café Tacvba was missing in action too.

According to Friends of Nature's Facebook page: "FON FEST and representatives of Café Tacvba will work together to see if a rescheduled performance in an alternative venue may be possible in the near future, dependent on the band's previous commitments - but at this time no make-up date can as of yet be determined. Look for an updated announcement in the near future."
