One Dead Of Suspected Drug Overdose At EDM Fest In Australia

With festival season approaching, stories like this are likely to become all too common.

One teenager has died and five others have been hospitalized from suspected drug overdoses at Sydney's A State of Trance festival over the weekend, Australian Broadcasting Corporation reports. About 16,000 people attended the event, which was headlined by Armin Van Buuren. Police arrested three attendees for supplying drugs, and an additional forty charges were issued for criminal infringement notice for drug possession and other offenses. With festival season fast approaching, let's hope stories of this sort don't continue to be too common.
