A video has surfaced that shows the graphically disturbing footage of physical altercations between security personnel and festival attendees. The BPM Festival recently kicked off their first experience at a new location in Praia da Rocha in Protimao and Lagoa, a lavishing beach-side tattered in regaling resorts. The festival experience was identical to their previous experiences in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico, where the festival was actually a composition of label-sponsored club nights and day parties.
The below captures the events unfolding in the middle of it and unfortunately the events that began the altercations are unknown to us at this time. It begins with security personnel surrounding a detained attendee sitting on the ground. Another festival attendee approaches security and is quickly punched in the face and chased after he attempts to get involved and touched a security personnel’s arm. All hell seems to break loose as security attacks another attendee and they begin to disperse with the original detained attendee. Fans throw sand at the retreating security personnel and the attendee capturing the footage claims that he was forced to the delete the video, but was still able to retrieve the footage in his recently deleted folder.
Got to love technology. See the footage down below and make your own judgments for now. We will update as soon as more information becomes available.
