UPDATE: SEPT. 30, 11:40 PM (EDT): The main stage is back up and running and Zeds Dead on now (live stream)!
Excision posted a statement in the official Headbangers Facebook group:
“Headbangers! Destroid was lit!
We were temporarily shut down due to a small fire at the top of the volcano. On hand fire personnel quickly had it under control and the fire was immediately extinguished. After approval from the fire marshal and the sheriff, we’ve started back up again and Zeds Dead is on stage killing it right now! Thanks everyone for your concern, Lost Lands goes on!”
Lost Lands just experienced a literal volcanic eruption, as a stage prop burst into flames tonight and shut down the main attraction at Excision‘s first-time festival in Thornville, OH.
According to sources at Lost Lands, the volcano caught fire during Destroid‘s set and music has since completely stopped at the Paradox main stage. Some have captured photos and videos of the stage lit up.
