Riots break out as Governors Ball is evacuated because of strong storm

Yesterday’s patrons were held at the gates until around 6:30 p.m. due to severe weather warnings, before being allowed entry. Then at 9:35 p.m., just a couple hours after finally opening the gates, the event issued an emergency evacuation due to impending thunderstorms and flash floods. The remaining sets for the day, including The Strokes, SZA, Charli XCX, Soccer Mommy and SOB X RBE were all cancelled.

While being evacuated, large groups of attendees chanted “REFUND!” in unison, as they milled toward the exits.
