Police claim to have seized a wide variety of drugs from the arrests, including ecstasy, speed, coke, cannabis, GHB, MDMA and LSD.

 

Six people were reported to have been hospitalised at the English trance act's Sydney show at Hordern Pavilion on New Year's Eve the night before — they were said to have suffered 'adverse reactions to GHB and ecstasy'.

 

There were also 31 drug-related arrests at the Sydney show.
