On the second night of what was one of the Summer’s highlights for thousands of music revellers, Swedish House Mafia entertained the masses at The Phoenix Park in Dublin on Saturday the 7th of July 2012. Eventhough The Stone Roses gig took place on the Thursday evening with no serious incidents occurring, this live concert date proved to be the total opposite.
Described on social media networks as a ‘disgrace’, Music Scene is sad to reveal that there were a total of nine stabbings and one death within the grounds of the concert arena in The Phoenix Park on Saturday for Swedish House Mafia plus special guests Snoop Dogg and Tinie Tempah.
The as yet unidentified male who died, was in his early 20’s and became ill and sought medical assistance from within the concert arena at approximately 7pm yesterday evening, Gardaí have confirmed. Another two males also died following overdoses within the vicinity of the outdoor venue, both who were believed to be heading to the concert at a later stage.
Our thoughts are with their family and friends at this time.
