Umbrellas weren’t enough for music fans on Sunday, as rain ruined the third and final day of 2016’s Governors Ball festival in New York City.

Event organizers canceled the exciting musical lineup due to “severe weather” and a high likelihood of lightning, according to a statement on their website.

Kanye West, Chvrches, Death Cab for Cutie, Eagles of Death Metal and Galantis were all set to perform at the event.

While Yeezy himself didn’t immediately share his reaction to being rained out, his wife Kim Kardashian West expressed her own disappointment through Instagram.

“So sad Governors Ball is cancelled due to weather,” she wrote, echoing her message in the accompanying video with makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic.

Disappointed festivalgoers will be refunded for their Sunday ticket, however, according to the Governors Ball website.

Earlier in the week, Elle King, Beck and The Strokes all performed on the main stage at the Don Julio-sponsored festival, with acts including Matt and Kim and Robyn singing at the island event’s other venues.
