“We certainly don’t want to see the festival be put in danger.”
Falls Festival 2016/2017
“I just remember going, ‘This is it, this is death.'”
“Everyone realised they couldn’t breathe, people started screaming.”
Organisers are “disgusted and angry”.
Almost 100 people were injured in the crowd crush.
A “special moment” at Falls.
Falls Festival 2016 in Lorne was not at all unlike the year it was seeing out; hyped up, marred with controversy, tragedy and social media shitstorms. All interspersed with some beautiful moments.
“We are beyond shattered.”
Music Feeds has obtained footage of the “shocking” incident, which left almost 100 people injured.
Three reports in two days.
“It looked like a war zone… The grass was stained with blood.”
19 of those have been taken to hospital with serious injuries.
A last-minute lineup change.
We know it’s happening, but we don’t know where.
Thirty to be exact.
Time to start navigating those clashes.
Grouplove’s replacements have been announced.
“There’s no pressure to put on more commercial artists because of their touring arm.”
We, for one, welcome our new festival overlords.
A replacement is set to be announce soon.
