A swarm of die-hard music lovers thronged the dusty, sweaty HUDA Grounds in Gurgaon to witness global music artist Sonny John Moore, popularly known as Skrillex, perform an enigmatic set on Sunday evening. However, it turned tragic when a young woman allegedly suffocated to death at the concert.
Reports said that the venue, which is supposed to accommodate 6,500 people, had nearly 8,000 on the night of the concert. Making his Indian debut, Skrillex has been touring the country as part of the Vh1 Supersonic Arcade.
Delhi resident Aanchal Arora, who was a student of Apparel Institute, lived in Pitampura and was in attendance at the event. She fainted during the concert and was declared ‘brought dead’ at the hospital.
