Tomorrowland Stage Engulfed In Flames [Videos]

Story from: 2oceansvibe.com

Things went very, very south at the Barcelona edition of Tomorrowland, with around 22 000 festival goers forced to evacuate after fire destroyed one of the stages.

Not that there was much panic, with many hanging around and snapping photos in front of the raging flames.

How much do you want to bet someone posted about it being lit? Yeah, you know they did.

Here’s the blaze doing its thing:

And how it all started:

Those initial flames were the result of a technical problem, according to organisers, with this eyewitness account via CNN:

Abel Radakovich told CNN that a calm and orderly evacuation helped keep everyone safe.

“No one died because people evacuated walking,” Radakovich said. “If someone ran, they told him not to because it could form an avalanche and crush people.”

“Luckily we managed to stay calm,” he said.

What a rush.
