UPDATED: Deadly Tiger Snake Found Under UNIFY Gathering Stage

Written by Tom Williams on January 17, 2016

UPDATE 18/1/16: Although originally identified as an Eastern Brown snake, people smarter than us have properly identified it as an Eastern Tiger snake. Still super deadly/scary but in the interest of keeping you snakeophiles happy, we’ve updated the article.

ORIGINAL ARTICLE: A frightening but all-too-Australian incident has occurred at the 2016 UNIFY Gathering in Victoria’s South Gippsland region, with a deadly eastern brown snake being found under the festival stage.

UNIFY security personnel informed Music Feeds present Harry Fuller that they found the snake under the stage yesterday, Saturday, 18th January, and stood next to the stage with shovels in hand until a flora and fauna expert arrived to capture the snake and take it away.

Witnesses said the snake was over a metre long, while BBC Radio 1‘s Daniel Carter took to Twitter to say the creature was found under the ramp which led up to the stage — a situation he appropriately called “sketchy AF”.

The eastern brown snake is considered the world’s second most venomous land snake, and its Wikipedia page can now be edited to say that it has literally shared the same stage as bands like Parkway Drive, In Hearts Wake and Tonight Alive.

Despite its snake intruder, UNIFY Gathering went off with a bang over the weekend after selling out for the second year in a row. No snakes were harmed in the running of the festival.
