Firefly 2015 Evacuated: Delaware Music Festival Evacuated Due To Tornado Threat

Firefly 2015 was evacuated over the weekend due to a tornado threat. According to Billboard, the weather started taking a turn for the worst around 10 p.m. Kings of Leon was preparing to take the stage, but concert workers noticed that the winds had picked up. While Kid Cudi was performing, a concert official was forced to grab the mic to make an announcement — everyone had to leave.

“Everyone evacuate. This is for your own safety,” said the unnamed spokesperson. Though many were disappointed, spirits remained high as hundreds exited The Woodlands. The report indicates that music fans came together, singing Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” and Lil Jon’s “Get Low” as they got themselves to a safer place.

Although Firefly 2015 was evacuated, no tornadoes were reported in the area. The heavy rains, thunder, and lightning were enough to stop the show, either way.

According to NewsMax, Steve Aoki and The Chainsmokers were the only two acts that were scheduled for Saturday that were able to perform on Sunday. Sunday’s line-up was pretty incredible, and the weather cooperated completely for the final day of the festival. An estimated 90,000 music lovers enjoyed the weekend, and had a great time despite Saturday night’s interruption.
