Yesterday (Oct. 22), the long-awaited When We Were Young Festival was set to kickoff in Las Vegas. Nev. Unfortunately, high winds forced organizers to cancel the Day One performances, which understandably resulted in plenty of amusing – if also angry – reactions on various social media platforms.
For example, one Facebook user commented, “So now we’ve had Fyre Fest and Wind Fest. I can’t wait to see what happens at Earth and Water fest,” while another wrote: “Feeling sad like i did when i was young ….Maybe this IS the event..!!!”

Meanwhile, Twitter responses were just as humorously agitated. One user surmised: “Lol spirit Halloween is probably plotting how to take over when we were young already.” Another person had an edgier take: “’When We Were Young’ cancelled, was it exposed for trying to hook up with a much younger music festival.”
Obviously, that’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to funny Twitter commentary:

Of course, the festival is still scheduled to continue today (Oct. 23), with the line-up including Paramore, My Chemical Romance, Taking Back Sunday, Jimmy Eat World, The All-American Rejects, Atreyu and Poppy (among others).
However, spectators have been no less sarcastic regarding whether or not Day Two will go according to plan:
