An American festival is doing something awesome following recent mass shooting in Las Vegas.

The Austin City Limits music festival is offering refunds to anyone uncomfortable with attending following the the attack at a country music concert earlier this week.

Spokeswoman Sandee Fenton said in an email Tuesday that the three-day outdoor festival will give refunds to fans "who no longer wish to attend."

The festival opens Friday and packs Austin, Texas' downtown with about 75,000 people each day.

It's one of the biggest festivals in the world which people flock to from across the globe, so this move is a big one. It's headlined this year by Jay Z and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

But the offer comes just days after a gunman opened fire at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas after which people are totally shaken and may well not want to enter a similar environment so soon after the attack.

However, Austin Interim Police Chief Brian Manley says there will be a high presence of law enforcement at the festival.
