[India], August 5 (ANI): The first night of Lollapalooza did not go as people would have wanted to.
Organisers of the music festival ordered the evacuation shortly after 9 p.m. local time, while performances from headliners Lorde and Muse were just getting underway.
The performances did not resume.
Lorde, who performed for the audiences in the pouring rain, took to Twitter and shared her disappointment.
She wrote, "I am so gutted guys i don't know what to tell you."
Muse frontman Matt Bellamy also tweeted that the band was "gutted," adding, "City/police made us leave the stage tonight 3 songs in at #Lollapalooza. Due to weather/lightning. Nightmare!"
Attendees expressed surprise on social media while sharing photos and videos from the ground zero.
Lollapalooza was initially scheduled to run through Sunday; organisers have not yet announced whether the remaining dates will be affected. (ANI)
