Tyga performs at Vestival festival on Aug. 22, 2014 in Amsterdam.
Concertgoers at Fresh Island Festival on Croatia’s Zrće beach have evacuated the premises following a massive fire breaking out late Monday (July 15).
Though no cause of the fire has been revealed, the festival posted an official statement on Facebook, noting, “We have paused tonight’s performance under instruction from the police and fire service as a safety precaution. Security have escorted fans to the beach and parking behind Noa Club and will direct people to shuttle buses leaving from the top of Noa Club parking near the main road to take people to Novalja town.”
A followup tweet reads, “We advise everyone to remain close to Noa Club main road entrance and not to attempt to make their way back to the town until the emergency services have provided further information on the situation. Once again we really appreciate everyone’s patience during this time.”

Tyga was scheduled to headline the show at Papaya nightclub on Monday night, along with U.K. rapper NOT3S. Billboard has reached out to Tyga’s reps for comment, and NOT3S took to Twitter to let waiting fans know that festival organizers were “saying I can’t perform.”
