You can plan a killer music festival, but you can't predict the weather.

Saturday was supposed to mark the arrival of Detroit's inaugural Kindred Music & Culture Festival — a day of outdoor music and fun featuring performances by emerging Motor City artists like Payroll Giovanni, Bevlove, Willie Mac Jr., and more. However, on Tuesday night festival organizers decided to postpone the festival for a later date, due to this weekend's expected thunderstorms.

"The safety of attendants, artists, and staff is our main priority, as well assuring the proper execution of the festival," the organizers wrote in a post shared to the festival's Instagram page.

The rescheduled date is from noon to 9 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 18. The festival will still be held at Roosevelt Park near Michigan Central Station, and the lineup remains the same. Previously purchased tickets will be honored at the new date.
