The band say they're 'devastated'

Tame Impala‘s set at California’s Desert Daze festival was cut short after just three songs due to adverse weather conditions last night (October 12), leading fans to voice their fury on social media.

As Stereogum reports, the band were just three songs into their set when a staff member came onstage to announce that the gig was being cut short due to a thunderstorm, urging fans to seek shelter. Until two hours earlier, organisers had reportedly insisted they would still play.

Due to safety concerns regarding dangerous weather, we are asking all guests to immediately exit the Desert Daze grounds and return to their cars and seek shelter. We ask that you stay in your cars and remain calm. We intend to continue on, but first need to consult with police

Greetings from @desert_daze 2018. So far, it’s been a trainwreck of logistical nightmares and unfortunate weather patterns. 3+ hour lines to park (missed 3 sets) and then Tame Impala cut short after 4 songs due to lightning storms.

I spent more time in my car than in the festival. I only bought a day pass and didn’t watch a single artist perform… (With the exception of 15 minutes of Tame Impala) I don’t get the chance to have my experience made up to me because only a day pass

???? @tameimpala sounded incredible at @desert_daze… until a man came onstage after the third song and said everyone had to go back to their tents and cars because of a lightning storm

Tame Impala posted a message of their own on Instagram, with the caption: “Devastated. Sorry Desert Daze. Hope everyone’s safe.”

The festival had previously announced that it would take place despite advance warnings of adverse weather, but advised attendees against sleeping in their tents.

“We’ve been advised by the meterologist that the current lightning-containing storm cells will last throughout the night,” they said the night before Tame Impala’s set. “Chances are this storm will be passing by morning. Therefore, we strongly advise AGAINST sleeping in your tent due to threat of lightning.”
