Future Music Festival Asia Cancellation: Death Fest?

Due to the deaths of six people, three people in critical condition, and 19 others arrested for drug possession, the narcotic situation in Future Music Festival Asia lead local authorities to cancel the third and final day of the music festival this past Saturday, March 15.

The cause of the deaths have been ruled as overdoses on methamphetamines.

FMFA released two official statements apologizing for the cancellation saying, “The health and safety of our patrons is of upmost importance to us and we are extremely devastated that circumstances such as these occurred despite the significant planning and resources in place.”

The festival organizers assured audiences that ticket refunding details would be in place within the next week.

But ticket holders have little to no sympathy for the drug-related deaths.

Festival goers are angry because of the unexpected cancellation, especially those that traveled half way around the globe to attend.

The third and largest day of the festival was expected to have FMFA’s biggest artist and producer lineups ever. Lineups included Pharrell Williams, Knife Party, Yuna, Eric Prydz, Sub Focus and Porter Robinson.

With dead, unsatisfied and angered fans, what will the future of FMFA look like? Will they step down, scale down or step it up for their 2016 debut?

Do YOU think FMFA should be at fault for the drug situation?
