Columbus music festival Rock on the Range has evacuated the venue and suspended the show due to weather, according to a Facebook post.

Your safety is our primary concern, which is why we had to evacuate and suspend the show. The storm that is approaching contains lightening, rain and high winds so the safest place for you is your vehicle. We will continue to keep you updated on the weather, so check back often. Additionally, we are working with the local authorities to extend our curfew once we reopen doors.

We will update this story with more information once it’s available.
