Due to a possible Hurricane and/or Tropical disturbance, the Summerfest 2009 people decided to pull the plug on the show, which obviously going to leave A LOT of people mad and upset. Their press release stated that its â€œpostponed, not canceled, due to weather concernsâ€ on a possible storm threat to Miami and that ticket purchasers should hold their tickets as they will be honored on the rescheduled date.
My thoughts â€“ it’s a bit too early to tell if the storm was or wasn’t coming. They could’ve atleast waited until Friday or Saturday. For more information on their postponing, visit

MIAMI, FL (RHONA FOX, INC.) – The uncertainty of the weather forecast for this weekend in Miami, Florida as a result of the two hurricanes looming in the Caribbean has forced the promoter of the South Florida Summer Fest 2009 to postpone the highly-anticipated event until further notice.
Promoter Vision Entertainment Worldwide arrived at this decision after careful consideration of the safety of ticket holders and has opted to move the concert to ensure the safety of their patrons who were expected to attend not only the event but all surrounding festivities planned for the weekend.
Summer Fest 2009 was scheduled for this Saturday, August 22, 2009 at the American Airlines Arena, with a press launch and several before-and-after parties planned for the exciting weekend. Headliners Akon, Ne-Yo, Flo Rida, T-Pain and Keri Hilson were slated to perform alongside Black Dada, Brisco, Wynter Gordon and Casely, to name a few of the special guest artists on the star-studded line-up.
Since the show has been postponed and NOT CANCELED, ticket holders are urged to retain their tickets for admission into the rescheduled show, for which their tickets will remain valid. Please stay tuned for further details on when Summer Fest 2009 will storm South Florida, minus actual storms of course.
