An eyewitness said on social media the stage “just exploded”.

No injuries have been reported as a result of the blaze, but firefighters are said to fear the stage’s structure could collapse.

Meanwhile, local media reported that festival organisers have vowed to refund the evacuated concert-goers.

Other acts booked to appear at the electronic dance music event, which was set to continue until 3am (2am UK time), included Dutch DJ Afrojack and Swedish DJ Ingrosso.

When the fire broke out, revellers had been enjoying acts livestreamed to the festival from the Tomorrowland Mainstage in Belgium.

The cause of the fire has not yet been established but is being investigated, according to the local authority.
