Show at 2am SOLD OUT— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) June 6, 2016
After Governors Ball officials cancelled Day 3 of the outdoor festival yesterday due to the weather, several of the acts looked to play shows elsewhere. Headliner Kanye West announced a 2 a.m. show at Webster Hall.
A few people showed up...

Some accounts put the crowds at 4,000-plus in the streets surrounding the venue on 11th between Third Avenue and Fourth Avenue.

On other East Village streets, people were excited.
Anyway! Not sure whatever was officially supposed to happen... but there wasn't a show...
There is no late show at Webster Hall tonight. Please get home safely.— Webster Hall (@WebsterHall) June 6, 2016
Check out Gothamist for an account of the chaos.
The Daily News reports that it took two more hours after the show was canceled to clear the street. Police said one person was arrested for disorderly conduct.
Too bad there's not a hotel right across the street from Webster Hall that fans could have stayed in instead.
