The festival – which kicked off on Friday evening with a performance by Donald Glover’s alter ego, Childish Gambino – is one of the world’s most popular music events, with tens of thousands of people attending over its first weekend.

But the fire caused panic, with footage posted online showing a man urging festival goers to “back up, back up” as the mobile shower unit stood ablaze behind him.
