Firefly Music Festival storm evacuation prompts change in lineup, report says – NJ.com

After a strong line of storms forced the evacuation of 90,000 concert-goers at the Firefly Music Festival Saturday night, the lineup for the final day has been changed, a report says.

Some of the acts that could not go on Saturday night may be rescheduled for Sunday, according to a report in the News-Journal of Wilmington, Delaware.

The concert, being held in Dover, Delaware, has included numerous big-name acts, including former Beatle Paul McCartney. It began Thursday and was to wrap up late Sunday.

Late Saturday night strong storms, spawned by former Tropical Storm Bill, swept through the outdoor concert venue prompting the music to stop and the call for the evacuation of the concert grounds.

At one point, for those who were not leaving by vehicle, concert organizers alerted those at campsite to take down their pop-up tents, poles, and canopies.

The gates at the concert were scheduled to reopen at noon Sunday.
