EYHO Fest CanceledAfter remaining optimistic the past 72 hours since the first warnings of an impending potential snow storm were mentioned, the closer and closer to this weekend's Eat Your Heart Out Festival we get, the worse the weather forecast gets. They are now calling for 18+ inches of snow starting Friday afternoon and not stopping until Saturday afternoon, with the heaviest times being from very late Friday night to just before noon Saturday. This makes not only Friday's part of the festival absolutely impossible but its also going to make transportation impossible for load in and door times for Saturday and more difficult for Sunday for not only the bands involved but all of the workers and fans traveling to the event.

The last thing we want to do is put bands, fans, or workers in a position where they feel the need to drive in these horrible conditions, especially since the City of Poughkeepsie is already talking about a state of emergency.

This year's line-up was by far the biggest and best we've ever had, and we're all struggled with this decision deeply and we are very upset to have to cancel.

Ticket buyers: you will be able to receive a refund at point of purchase.

This storm's nothing to mess with. Good call by the promoters.

I hope the Title Fight show in NJ on Saturday night goes on as planned...

If you schedule a festival in the NE in the middle of Winter you're kinda asking for trouble...

A few hours north oh Poughkeepsie were getting at least a foot. But southeastern NY and CT/Ma is going to be absolutely pounded. It sucks but its the right call

Good call on their part it's not worth it. I'm about to go clear ten inches of snow off my driveway. Dam Nemo.

You could always say it's after Captain Nemo, who's decidedly more badass.
