Festival goers have shared scary footage of the fire that ripped through parts of the Coachella festival yesterday morning.
The blaze broke out in the early hours of Saturday morning at the music and arts event in Indio, California.
It appears to have started at a mobile shower in the campgrounds.
Fire services said that they responded to the fire at around 2am after revellers said they hear an explosion.
Video footage shows security staff evacuating the area, telling people to run.
