"For your safety, everyone onsite should calmly proceed to the main entrance to seek shelter in Harvard Square or other locations," Boston Calling said in a tweeted statement. "Fans who exit the festival grounds will be permitted to re-enter."
The festival said in a later new tweet that it would reopen at 5:30, with music resuming at 6 p.m.
This weekend's festival comes after a two-year hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic. The Strokes, who were scheduled to perform Saturday, had to cancel due to a positive COVID-19 case.
King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard also had to cancel their performance because of a COVID case in the band, Boston Calling said in its tweet announcing the resumption of the festival.
