More Than 22,000 Evacuated From Tomorrowland In Spain After Stage Bursts Into Flames

Written by Sam Murphy on July 30, 2017

22,143 people have been evacuated from Tomorrowland in Spain after a large fire broke out at one the stages.

Footage taken by attendees at the festival near Barcelona shows the side of one of the stages busting into flames with black smoke billowing into the sky.

Organisers took to Facebook to say that the fire was caused by a, “technical malfunction”.

“Thanks to the professional intervention of the authorities all 22.000 visitors were evacuated safely and without reports of injuries.”

EDM producers Steve Aoki and Afrojack both played at the festival which is an offshoot of the main event in Belgium. That festival is also going down this weekend.

Unlike the Belgium event, the Spanish leg of the festival was only due to go for one day and so the fire did not affect any other days. It will continue in Belgium.
