A TV still image shows the stage of Tomorrowland  in flames in Barcelona, Spain, on July 29.

Tomorrowland concert-goers just outside Barcelona, Spain had to evacuate on Saturday night after fire consumed 1 of the stages. Just over 22,000 fans were forced to leave, though no injuries were reported.

Video of the blaze shows smoke billowing from part of the stage as fans seem to calmly leave the area. Several even hang around to take a photo or 2. Event organizers wrote on Facebook that the fire was caused by a “technical problem,” but called the evacuation “fast & professional.”

“Authorities will follow up & continue the investigation w/the local Spanish organizer of UNITE,” read a statement on the concert’s website.
