German music festival to resume after Friday evacuation amid terror threat
The event was closed nearly two weeks after the Manchester terror attack at a music concert.
A popular German rock festival is set to resume on Saturday after police searches failed to confirm fears of a terrorist threat, organisers have said.
Authorities shut down and cleared thousands of fans from the three-day Rock am Ring festival near Nurburg on Friday evening, its opening night.
They cited what they called “concrete indications on the basis of which a possible terrorist threat can’t be ruled out”.
They did not give any further details.
Rock am Ring organisers have now said in a Facebook post that police have cleared them to prepare to reopen the site.
