Did you see the alarming footage of the fire on stage at Tomorrowland Unite in Barcelona? http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/07/29/thousands-evacuated-tomorrowland-music-festival-barcelona-stage/

Apparently it was caused by a “technical malfunction”. Fortunately all attendees were safely evacuated but it did lead to the event being cancelled. One of Tomorrowland’s other satellite events, Unite Taiwan, also had to be called off because of the impact of Typhoon Nesat. It must create an administrative nightmare for the organiser :confounded:

Yea, I saw that in the news and went straight into the mind of the organiser! Must have been awful!
