Teenage Girl 'Disfigured' After Flare Fired During Soundwave Set
A horrific accident at the weekend will serve as a tragic reminder to take safety seriously at festivals. According to reports, a girl has been "horribly burned and disfigured" after a member of the audience watching Bring Me The Horizon fired a flare above the crowd during their set at Soundwave Festival in Sydney, Australia. Now she has had to seek emergency surgery after sustaining serious burns, according to Blabbermouth. It wasn't the only flare to go off at Soundwave this year. A flare went off during Metallica's headline set on the mainstage, though it appears that people escaped injury that time. Now Soundwave boss AJ Maddah is furious, and is calling on festival attendees to help identify the criminal involved in these risky stunts. "If anyone can correctly identify this son of a bitch, I will shower you with so much tickets, backstage and cash, you won't know what to do," he said. "If you see anyone with a lit flare please take their photo and tweet to me so I can hand to police." Soundwave, like many festivals, has had its fair share of unfortunate accidents. Last year a 23-year-old man was critically injured after falling five-meters from a staircase, and suffered head injuries. Watch the flare go off during the Bring Me The Horizon set at Soundwave and get caught in these stage before falling into the audience here:
