PETALING JAYA: Organisers of upcoming music fest Life In Color have decided to pull the plug following drug-related deaths at a similar event over the weekend.
Life In Color – dubbed the “world’s largest paint party” – was earlier scheduled to take place at the Sepang International Go-Kart Circuit on April 19.
The organisers – Life In Color, Future Sound Asia and Zouk KL – posted the announcement on their Facebook page, stating that the decision was made out of respect for the country and Malaysians.
This decision came after organisers of last week’s Future Music Festival Asia (FMFA) decided not to proceed with the final day of the event after six concert-goers died and 14 people were hospitalised from drug overdose.
The organiser, Livescape Asia, had said that the decision was taken in the interest of public safety and to heed the authority’s advice.
“This is also to help in ongoing investigation. We appreciate the understanding of all parties and will share updates on this matter as soon as possible,” it said.
Concert goers took to Life In Color’s Facebook page to voice their dissatisfaction over the decision to cancel the event, which was to be its first appearance in the country.
