Fan Death At EDM Show

A 23-year-old man died and 20 overdosed at the Defqon.1 rave at the Sydney International Regatta Centre Sept. 14. About 85 of the 18,000 attendees were arrested on drug charges.


People were out of control in there,” one clubber claimed, adding that high cost of alcohol saw patrons opt for drugs.

Organisers had employed a private medical team to oversee audience members with the help of six Ambulance Service of NSW paramedics.

Brennan Hart, Gunz For Hire and Frontliner were among the headliners.

EDM shows in the U.S. are under extra scrutiny lately following repeat reports of deaths and overdoses.
