The German music festival Rock Am Ring, which gathers over 100,000 participants, on Saturday night was hit by two lightning strikes that injured 33 people.
At 1 o'clock a lightning bolt hit the backstage area, while another lightning bolt struck the camping area about three hours later, writes Berlingske.
Police said that eight festival workers were injured by the first lightning strike.
Organizers had to cancel several concerts and offered festival goers shelter in large, lightening proof tent.
Then another 25 people were injured when lightning again struck at the camping site.
The 33 people were taken to hospital for observation, but no one is seriously injured, police said.
The popular rock festival is held in the town of Mendig in East Germany. Sunday's festival program will be carried out as planned.
