This weekend's Rock am Ring is continuing today after last night's terror alert.

The festival site was evacuated last night (June 02) due to what organisers called "a terrorist threat", but organisers now say, "After intensive searches and sweeps of the complete festival site by the police the suspicion of a potential terrorist threat has not been confirmed."

This means the festival will continue today and tomorrow, with the likes of Pierce The VeilSleeping With Sirens and Beartooth all scheduled to perform.

You can read the festival's full statement below.
