Germany’s ROCK AM RING festival has been suddenly shut down due to a terrorist threat. The rest of the June 2 lineup has been canceled, including a headlining performance from RAMMSTEIN.
ROCK AM RING has not shared the exact specifications of the terror threat, but it’s serious enough to evacuate the festival grounds and surrounding campsites. ROCK AM RING hope to re-open the grounds for the remaining two days of the fest.
See what ROCK AM RING organizers stated below:
