Tragically, a DJ has died and more were injured at a Brazilian dance music festival Atmosphere, after a stage collapsed due to extreme weather conditions.
DJ Kaleb (Kalleby Freitas da Rosa), 30, was DJing on the O Santuário Stage on Sunday when the huge stage collapsed, reportedly due to heavy rain and winds. DJ Kaleb was taken to hospital with head injuries, and was sadly announced dead on arrival.
Atmosphere Festival issued a statement via Facebook yesterday evening, which has been translated from the original Portuguese.
"We always cherish the security of our audience, following all the processes, reports and authorisations requested by the local authorities. And to our audience we will keep them informed of all our actions to keep the truth about the facts that have occurred. We're sorry, we lost a friend, an artist. Our priority is to assist the wounded and their families. We thank the military brigade and the fire department for all their assistance."
Our thoughts go out to DJ Kaleb's family and friends.
