An open-air weekend “Rock am Ring” concert near Germany’s Nürburgring race track will resume on June 3.

Police had suspended the event over a possible terrorist threat.

“After intensive searches of the whole festival area, the suspicions have not hardened into an acute threat situation,” the organizers said on their Facebook page, adding that police had given a green light for the concert to go ahead.

The number of security officials at the festival was boosted to 1,200.

Police and organizers are more cautious after a suicide bombing in Manchester killed 22 people at an Ariana Grande concert.
