As shown in the AP photo above, festival organizers set up a makeshift care center to begin transporting people to a local health facility near Borlänge, Central Sweden.
"First we saw a lightning flash and then we heard a really loud clap of thunder. The next thing we knew, the ambulances had come," says witness Amanda Andersen to the Dagens Nyheter newspaper (quote via The Local).
Lightning struck the grounds around 3PM on Tuesday, just as the summer concert series was beginning. Rihanna, Mumford and Sons, Regina Spektor, Skrillex, Bloc Party and Billy Idol are just a few of the big-name performers.
The people involved have reportedly received only minor injuries, with most "up and walking."
