20 Overdoses At Stereosonic Music Festival

Australia’s drug problem is still on the rapid rise as one of their most popular festivals, Stereosonic, faces even more scrutiny following 20 overdoses at their stop in Brisbane. 2 people have already died on the famous touring festival and with the recent overdoses.

 

While some fans and families are blaming the festival for the overdoses and deaths, ultimately, the responsibility lays with the attendees as they are the ones taking these drugs. The show in Brisbane marks the end of the festival’s 5 stop tour and with that festival organizers and police are already planning for more secure measures for Stereosonic’s return in 2o16.
