Four men were rushed to the hospital after a fight broke out at Garage Nation music festival in east London this weekend.
According to BBC News, The Metropolitan Police believe all four men were stabbed during a fight that broke out in the VIP area at the festival. All have “stab and slash” wounds. One of the victims has serious injuries that could be “life-changing”, while the others have less serious injuries and are not currently in hospital care.
A 21-year-old attendee named Mel Dee witnessed some of the fight as she was on her way to one of the bars at the festival, which hosted 100 artists focusing on the genres of garage, house and r’n’b. She says she saw one of the victims get slashed in the back:
“We saw him go towards someone in quite an aggressive manner. Then he jolted back. They had slit his back, slashed him. It was very deep, he was fuming. All of a sudden he ran towards whoever else it was and soon there were 15 of them. Other knives were pulled out. I could see people punching – arms flying everywhere. We ran as far away as we could.”
