Defqon. 1 is CANCELLED after controversial music festival was rocked by deaths of man and woman who died from drug overdoses
Defqon. 1 has been cancelled after the controversial music festival was rocked by deaths of a man and woman who died from suspected drug overdoses.
The festival made the announcement on Thursday afternoon, explaining they were unable to find a suitable location for the event.
‘Unfortunately the Sydney International Regatta Centre and its affiliates have withdrawn their support for the event,’ festival organisers said in a statement.
‘Despite our best efforts, we have been unable to secure a suitable replacement venue for the event to take place this September.’
Defqon. 1 thanked its loyal fans who have attended the festival over the past decade, despite the controversy.
‘To our fans, Ambassadors, and everyone else that has contributed to the incredible memories we created for the past 10 years: from the depths of our orange heart we would like to thank all of you for your ongoing support, dedication, and for creating the most epic family imaginable.’
