36 people have been hospitalised after an Avicii concert in Boston’s TD Garden.
According to The Boston Globe, many of them were minors. Authorities claim that they were “suffering mainy from drug and alcohol problems”. A 19-year old witness says “You couldn’t breathe if you were on the floor … a lot of people who couldn’t handle themselves. People who don’t do drugs come here and do drugs.”
In May, an Avicii concert in Toronto suffered a similar fate when 29 people were hospitalised.
Last year, Major Lazer’s Jillionaire claimed that “we need to teach kids how to [safely] do drugs, the same way we teach them about drinking responsibly and having safe sex”, adding that “instead of acting like drugs don’t exist, acknowledge that drugs will be at a festival and address them.”
