Tragedy at Atmosphere Festival
Written by UPFM on December 18, 2017
One dead DJ and several injured in a terrible rigging accident.
The storm that struck the Metropolitan Region of Porto Alegre on Sunday afternoon (DEC 17/2017) caused the collapse of one of the two stages of Atmosphere Festival, a rave party held this weekend at the Parque de Exposições Assis Brasil in Esteio . The fall of the structure caused the death of DJ Kaleb de Freitas and left three other people with minor injuries. When the structure fell, the DJ was playing on the stage. According to the victim’s uncle, Luis Freitas da Silva, Kaleb suffered a head injury. The body of the DJ, KALEB will be sent to the IML of Canoas. Despite bad weather being forecast, the ‘show went on’. The tragic occurrence will hopefully lead to a review of festival safety violations.
Thoughts and prayers go out to the family & fans of DJ KALEB and all those injured and/or affected.
