Stereosonic festival has seen some serious drug related issues throughout it’s latest tour this time around. The 2 deaths and 20 overdose cases combined is putting serious media attention on the promoters, who released this message to their fans:
“We cannot express our concerns highly enough regarding the dangers of drug use, We have tragically lost two lives to drugs during our festival and whilst every effort has been made to protect you and keep you safe with our teams of professional medical and security staff, …you as individuals need to make smart choices and understand the risks you are taking. As media reports have indicated there are various highly dangerous substances on the market and there is no way of knowing what is in them. Do not gamble with your life today.”
The festival brand plans to implement a forward thinking policy for its next run of shows, but considering the tone of this message the promoters need to implement more damage control.
