Gates to Florida music festival reopen after brief shutdown

ST. CLOUD, Fla. (WESH) —Hundreds of people hoping to attend a music festival being held this weekend in St. Cloud were briefly turned away Friday afternoon.

The Dirty Bird Campout East is a music festival scheduled for Feb. 2 through Feb. 4. at Forever Florida Adventure Park in St. Cloud.

Festival officials said in a Facebook post that they had been asked to close its gates and not allow anyone in after a series of noise complaints received Thursday night.

“We have been told to close the gates and no one is being allowed in until further notice. We are working with the local officials to try and resolve the issue,” the post said. The post advised people not already at the site to avoid traveling to the event until further notice.

Chopper 2 was over the venue when the gates reopened around 4:15 p.m., less than two hours after the Facebook post was made.
