POLICE are looking for a hoax caller who last night made a threat to police that "something" was going to happen at Rockhampton's Studio 2 Nightclub, where an underage-event was taking place.

About 350 teenagers, aged between 12 and 17, were at the nightclub at a planned underage event.

Studio 2 was evacuated for some time, while police examined the premises for any threats.

A police media spokeswoman said a 000 call was made to emergency services sometime between 6.50pm and 7.10pm
