OXFORD, Miss. — The Student Activities Association has canceled the annual spring concert in the Grove due to current weather conditions and the threat of inclement weather throughout the day on Sunday, April 30.
The decision was made after consulting with university officials and event personnel after taking into consideration current weather conditions and the continued threat of severe weather forecast by the National Weather Service throughout the afternoon on Sunday.
“While we were excited about having Gucci Mane and Mix Master Mike in the Grove this afternoon, our primary concern is the safety of our students, concert attendees, the artists and event staff,” said Brady Ruffin, Director of the Student Activities Association. “We have been looking forward to a great show, but with the threat of flash flooding and potential for tornadoes this afternoon, we decided to do what is best for everyone involved.”
There is no alternative event scheduled for the spring concert.
