[UK], June 3 (ANI): In less than two weeks after 22 people were killed in a terror attack at Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, Rock am Ring, one of the biggest music festivals in Germany, was abruptly shut down on Friday evening due to a terror warning.

Festival organizers said on Facebook "due to a terrorist threat the police have advised us to interrupt the festival."

According to the Independent, around 90,000 music fans were expected to attend the annual three-day event by the end of the weekend.

However, the organizers are expecting to go ahead with the festival on Saturday.

Rock Am Ring was cancelled last year after more than 80 people were injured by lightning strikes during fierce and sudden summer storms. (ANI)
