BROOKLYN - The last day of a music festival scheduled to include Kanye West and Death Cab for Cutie among the performers is canceled because of weather concerns.

The organizers of the Governors Ball said events on Sunday weren't going to be held "due to severe weather and a high likelihood of lightning in the area." Strong winds and thunderstorms were predicted for the area through Sunday night.

The annual event is held on Randall's Island in New York City and usually goes for three days. Among those who performed on Friday and Saturday were Elle King, the Strokes, Beck, Miguel and De La Soul.

Organizers said ticket holders would be getting refunds.
