According to the event’s website, festival goers had been promised to have access to leave and re-enter the festival grounds whenever they wanted. However reports from viewers say that was not the case Saturday night.

One person who spoke with FOX 5 said they traveled all the way from New York for the festival, but missed the final performance of day two after being denied re-entry to the festival.

“they were not forthcoming about what was going on. They were just saying no one’s getting in – we’re at capacity, but what’s perplexing is given the amount of space given, you should be able to count how many people are in and let people know otherwise you can not oversell an event where no one can come back in, “Deion Stalling tells FOX 5.

The FOX 5 fans who spoke denied re-entry now say they will ask the festival for refunds.
