According to the inclement weather clause in the artist agreement between Sublime with Rome and Student Government, the band will be paid full price for its performance. Osprey Productions’ guarantee for Sublime with Rome to perform is $100,000.

Spinnaker reached out to OP for comments on the artist contract at 1:10 p.m. and is waiting for a response. Spinnaker is currently working on getting more information about the four performers not currently scheduled to play today.

Because space is limited, 650 UNF students who present their Osprey1Card will be permitted entry and there will be a strict no re-entry policy enforced.

According to Student Government, a refund process for non-UNF students who purchased a ticket for today is still being sorted out*.
