Some fans fought back during a weather-related evacuation at SeatGeek Stadium in Bridgeview outside Chicago.

The three-day Summer Smash Festival came to an end Sunday with a long-awaited set by Chicago’s Chief Keef after a string of other hip-hop stars — and a brief interruption by Mother Nature.

Billed as the world’s largest independently-owned hip-hop festival, the fest brought more than 50 acts to perform on three stages at SeatGeek Stadium in Bridgeview.

The party came to a halt for roughly an hour when attendees were ordered to evacuate because a threat of high winds and severe weather. While many did, some fans refused to leave and others protested by tossing water bottles and upturning garbage carts. Sets by several acts were cut short.

Summer Smash was founded five years ago by media company Lyrical Lemonade and concert promoter SPKRBX.
