The festival was paused for 30 minutes before play resumed and Green Day began their set.

"I can't wait to see my attractive boyfriend", he wrote in a Thursday Facebook post, featuring a drawing of the two. "A very courageous artist named Pedro lost his life tonight in a tragic accident", the band tweeted shortly after their performance.
