LESSONS FOR FREMANTLE FALLS FESTIVAL

Posted in city of fremantle, concert, festivals by freoview on January 1, 2017

City of Fremantle officers should double-check the number of patrons Falls Festival organisers want to allow into the venue this coming weekend after the panic stampede at the Falls Festival in Lorne, Victoria this weekend.

More than 60 young people were injured, some with broken bones, sprains and suspected spinal injuries.

One young woman told TV reporters that she had felt uncomfortable from the beginning because there were so many people and she felt squeezed in. She said it was “like drowning on land” and she had started to hyper-ventilate.

The set up of the Falls Festival at Kings Square is no doubt different from that in country Victoria but it’s better to be safe than to be sorry.
