CROATIA (CelebrityAccess) – Concertgoers at Fresh Island Festival on Croatia’s Zrće beach were evacuated following a massive fire, which broke out on the premises late Monday evening (July 15).
The festival posted an official statement on Facebook, saying: “We have paused tonight’s performance under instruction from the police and fire service as a safety precaution. Security have escorted fans to the beach and parking behind Noa Club and will direct people to shuttle buses leaving from the top of Noa Club parking near the main road to take people to Novalja town.”
A follow-up tweet reads: “We advise everyone to remain close to Noa Club main road entrance and not to attempt to make their way back to the town until the emergency services have provided further information on the situation. Once again we really appreciate everyone’s patience during this time.”
In another post after midnight ET, organizers said police have confirmed it is “not safe to walk back to the town as the fire is still not contained.”
Tyga was scheduled to headline the show at Papaya nightclub on Monday night, along with U.K. rapper NOT3S. No cause of the fire has been revealed.
