80,000 Evacuated From German Music Festival After Terrorist Threat

These people just want to ruin life for everyone.

Sadly, we must report that yet another concert has apparently been targeted by terrorists.

Over 80,000 audience members were evacuated when the Rock am Ring festival in N├â┬╝rburg, Germany, had to suspend activities over what police called “concrete indications” of a “possible terrorist threat.”

The major German fest included scheduled performances from such diverse acts as Macklemore, System Of A Down, Liam Gallagher, and Machine Gun Kelly.

Friday night’s headliners, German metal giants Rammstein, were warming up but had not yet taken the stage when police and organizers announced the festival was suspended for the rest of the day.

Festival goers were seen leaving in a calm, collected manner, even having a sing-along:

Gerry and the Pacemakers. Nice choice.

Police said they had previously beefed up security to 1,200 officers after the Manchester attack, but they still couldn’t rule out the threat.

We’re just glad we can say no one was hurt.
