DJ Killed At Festival In Brazil After Stage Collapsed During Performance


A 30-year-old DJ was killed at the Atmosphere Festival in Brazil after high winds caused the stage to collapse.

DJ Kaleb Freitas was performing Sunday when the stage suddenly collapsed at about 2 p.m. local time. Partygoers captured the horrifying moment the metal structure over the stage came down during a storm at the packed Atmosphere Festival in Esteio near the southern city of Porto Alegre. 

DJ Kaleb, born Kalleby Freitas da Rosa, was rushed to hospital critically injured after suffering head injuries, unfortunately, he died soon after arrival.

An investigation has now begun to determine why the festival wasn’t shut down, in spite of the severe weather warnings about heavy wind, hail and torrential rain. There were almost 5,000 people in attendance at the festival but only three others were injured and they are expected to make a speedy recovery.

Friends of the late DJ have took to Facebook today to pay tribute to the musician.

I told you that less than three weeks ago and be assured we will always remember you with a huge smile on your face. You were a spectacular man. Your smile represented peace. No-one dies while they remain in peoples’ hearts.
