The festival was evacuated on Friday in a procedure that participants described as calm, with festival-goers reportedly singing You'll Never Walk Alone as they left the site.

"After a series of intensive searches across the site the fears of an imminent danger were not confirmed", the organisers said. After questioning the three, police learned the individual's names did not match the names on their passes, Koblenz police chief Wolfgang Fromm told a news conference according to ABC News.

An open-air weekend "Rock am Ring" concert near Germany's Nuerburgring race track resumed on Saturday after being suspended on Friday due to a possible terrorist threat, the organizers and police said. "We take all references and all suspicious moments very seriously and follow them intensively".

Three people were arrested on Friday night and their homes searched.

Every year, music lovers from all over the world gather to attend the "Rock am Ring" music festival in Germany.

"Because of the last attack on a concert in Manchester, the security concept for Rock am Ring was modified in advance and the number of security officers was significantly increased to around 1,200".


Authorities said there were "concrete indications on the basis of which a possible terrorist threat can't be ruled out", but gave no details at the time.

The German band Rammstein was the Friday night headliner, but had not yet started playing when the alarm was raised. Set up for day two of Rock am Ring has commenced, and the program will resume in the early afternoon.

The festival grounds were clear by 9:30 p.m., about a half hour after people were told that they were going to have to leave.

"The incredibly disciplined fans deserve all our respect and gratitude", it added.

Rock am Ring's final day was canceled in 2016 after at least 80 people were injured by lightning during a storm.
