Tomorrowland Barcelona Inferno Eruption: 22,000 Evacuated

Not to be too much of a downer, but it’s kind of been a bad year for festivals. There have been deaths from overdoses, cancellations of some of our favorite festivals and don’t even get us started on the disaster that was Fyre Festival. Tomorrowland Spain is the latest festival to get hit by the bad luck truck.

Unite, but maybe after the fire is put out.

Tomorrowland UNITE took place in Barcelona over the weekend. However, it didn’t make it too long before one of the stages erupted into flames. It happened right before Steve Aoki was about to start his headlining appearance.

This was no small fire, either. It was a massive inferno that overtook the entire stage. All 22,000 attendees had to be evacuated. Luckily, no injuries were reported.

That doesn’t look like part of the light show…

Tomorrowland’s Facebook page released an official statement about the accident:

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. Authorities will follow up and continue the investigation with the local Spanish organizer of UNITE.

As a result, Tomorrowland is canceling its upcoming stop in Taiwan until they make sure everything is functioning properly.
