Organizers of the Creamfields festival near Cheshire, England, canceled the last day of the EDM event after heavy rain and flooding overtook the festival grounds, the BBC reports. Yesterday's headliners included Deadmau5 and Calvin Harris, but people had begun to leave the festival Saturday night because of the poor weather. Organizers informed attendees on Sunday morning of the decision to cancel. Skrillex and Avicii were among those who had already performed.

Rain also dominated the Isle of Wight festival earlier this summer, leaving thousands stranded as the festival grounds were flooded.

“Wake Up Everybody”

John Legend and the Roots | 2010

A Number One record by Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes in 1976 (a McFadden- and Whitehead-penned classic sung by Teddy Pendergrass) inspired the title and lead single from Wake Up!, John Legend's tribute album to message music. The more familiar strains of "Wake Up Everybody" also fit his agenda. "It basically sums up, in a very concise way, all the things we were thinking about when we were putting this record together in that it's about justice, doing the right thing and coming together to make the world a better place," he said. Vocalists Common and Melanie Fiona assist Legend on this mission to connect.
