SAUGERTIES, N.Y. (AP) -- Hundreds of vehicles remain stuck in the mud at an outdoor concert site in the Hudson Valley after violent storms forced a three-day festival to end early.
Local media report that tow trucks and farmers' tractors are being used Monday to pull vehicles out of the muck at the Winston Farm in Saugerties, 100 miles north of New York City.
Thousands of music fans began arriving Friday for the Hudson Project, which featured more than 80 acts, including Modest Mouse and the Flaming Lips.
The festival was scheduled to end around midnight Sunday, but the promoters and emergency officials shut it down late in the afternoon after severe storms hit the area.
The Winston Farm was the site of the 1994 Woodstock 25th anniversary concert that drew 350,000 people.
