Future Music Festival Asia Tragedy: 6 Deaths Reported

It was with sadness that day three of Future Music Festival Asia was cancelled after the tragic news of six deaths being directly linked to drug overdoses with one occurring on the festival grounds.

Organisers released a media statement quoting:

“As at 5.00PM on March 15, we can confirm that one death, and not five, took place on festival grounds on March 14. A police report has been filed and we are working very closely with all relevant authorities in examining and determining the cause of this very unfortunate incident”

The official reports state that all deaths were suspected methamphetamine overdoses with festival goers aged between 19 and 28. Pretty risky business taking drugs in a country where the usual penalty for being caught is death.

Although the FMF Asia was equipped with maximum safety measures at hand, the festival organisers consulted with all relevant stakeholders before making the tricky decision to pull the plug on day three and offer patrons full day refunds.

Police Chief Tuan Moan Singh has thankfully given Future Music the green light by stating. “We recognize the efforts of the organizers in putting in place preventative health and safety measures at the event. They have cooperated fully with the Police on both days to create a safe environment for the public. What happened at the event is unfortunate and we remind all members of the public of the immense dangers associated with the use of illegal substances”.
