The tragedy happened at the Atmosphere Festival in Porto Alegre, Brazil on December 16th.
The unfortunate event took place when strong winds caused the collapse of the main stage, which resulted in the death of one artist and 4 others injured. DJ Kaleb Freitas was making his presentation during that moment. Unfortunately, he died later due to injuries received by the structure’s collapse.
