Thousands evacuated from Tomorrowland music festival in Barcelona after stage engulfed in flames – Telegraph.co.uk
Among the stars appearing at the festival was Steve Aoki, whose collaboration with One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson – Just Hold On – soared to the top of the charts.
The cause of the fire remains unclear, although it is believed that it could have been triggered by a firework display which was part of the show.
“The fire brigade’s initial hypothesis is that there was an overheating of the material used in the construction of the stage during the presentation of a pyrotechnic spectacle,” the Globo website reported.
On Â Facebook, Tomorrowland organisers said: “Tonight, July 29th 2017, the UNITE Barcelona stage caught fire due to a technical malfunction.
“Thanks to the professional intervention of the authorities all 22.000 visitors were evacuated safely and without reports of injuries.
