Rock am Ring 2017: Evacuated Due To Terror Threat – All Details

It was just announced that German’s biggest Rock festival “Rock am Ring” was interrupted by the police. Apparently due to a terror threat! Here are all the details we found out so far:

  • organiser Marek Lieberberg personally announced the evacuation of the festival area on stage
  • apparently someone who worked at the festival cannot be identified clearly and might pose a threat with a terrorist background. The person was classified as a potential endangerer. 
  • The police is currently investigating the festival area
  • Marek Lieberberg himself said repeatedly during a press conference that he believes the interruption of the festival was premature and there is no acute threat for the audience
  • He hopes that the area will be cleared by the police soon so that the festival can continue tomorrow
  • Today’s headliners Rammstein are currently in talks to be rescheduled to tomorrow

We will post any new insights about the investigation on our Twitter @GIDMagazine!
