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.

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
