Heavy storms have forced promoters of the Austin City Limits music festival in Texas to scrap the final day of this year's (13) event.

Dangerous weather conditions and several flash flood warnings left organisers little choice but to shut the festival down early on Sunday (13Oct13) and cancel sets from Atoms for Peace, Lionel Richie, the National, Franz Ferdinand and Phoenix.

Franz Ferdinand frontman Alex Kapranos took to Twitter to vent his frustration, writing, "So disappointed that Acl is cancelled. I've been looking forward to this all week."
