All Evanston beaches are closed today because of wind conditions, and Northwestern University officials are asking people attending the Dillo Day music festival to stay off the rocks along the campus shoreline because of the wind and wave conditions.

NU’s North Beach is also closed for the day.

Update 4:55 p.m.: Northwestern officials now say that because of safety concerns caused by the inclement weather, the Dillo Day concert and activities on the lakefront of Northwestern’s Evanston campus have been cancelled. No outdoor concerts will occur today or this evening. The University is providing a variety of indoor activities as an alternative.
