Electric Daisy Carnval in Las Vegas tonight was shut down temporarily as a result of high winds buffeting tall sound stages.
A representative of the Los Angeles-based promoter said the music shut-down was temporary and that winds were being monitored to determine when fans could return to the stage areas.
Patrons were told ...
... to head to the stands at the venue, Las Vegas Motor Speedway, until further notice.
The shut-down appeared to cut off sets by Calvin Harris and Dubfire.
Organizers announced the situation around 12:45 a.m.
One festival worker said there were "well over" 100,000 patrons tonight.
Promoters of the three-day dance music festival, which started in Los Angeles and moved to Las Vegas last year amid controversy in L.A., said they sold 300,000 three-day tickets.
