#ASEANMusicFestPH cancelled due to unruly crowd

The Music Festival staged in time for the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Summit 2017 was cancelled due to a large turn out of crowd at Ayala Triangle, behind the Philippine Stock Exchange, Makati City, Tuesday night.

Official statement by the National Organizing Council (NOC): โ€œFor reasons of public safety, we have stopped the show. People are slowly leaving the venue to go home. We are very sorry for the inconvenience.โ€

Makati police chief Senior Superintendent Gerardo Umayao said that the event was cancelled “because some of the people are already passing out.”

The music festival was one of the highly promoted event in the ASEAN summit. But the organizers already cancelled the event fearing stampede will happen.
