Thousands evacuated from Tomorrowland Unite after fire on main stage

Over 22,000 people have been evacuated after the main stage at Tomorrowland Unite caught fire in Barcelona on Saturday night.

It is alleged that the fire broke out on the stage due to a pyrotechnic fault. The Tomorrowland Unite festival took place at Can Zam Park in Santa Coloma de Gramenet, just north of Barcelona.

 

22,143 people are said to have been evacuated from the event, but no injuries had been reported so far. The cause of the fire is still unknown, although local media reported that it appeared to be related to the pyrotechnics, and that it was quickly brought under control.
