Right now Counterpoint Music Festival is closing down in the rolling hills of Georgia; a perfect time for Kygo to make his headlining appearance.
A Your EDM staff member, Ben Jacobs, was in the crowd for Kygo’s set and caught video of Kygo’s assistant manager*, running on stage to save a girl who was nearly burned to death. A mere ten seconds after Kygo’s assistant manager rushes her off the stage, and after a few boos ring out from the crowd in disdain for removing the fan, it quickly becomes apparent that his actions were honorable when unexpected fire – hot enough to kill – shoots out in front of the stage where the girl was standing mere moments before.
Myles, Kygo’s manager, had some words about the incident as well:
“It’s important to make sure everyone is safe at all costs. As a manager the show needs to be the best it can be but must make sure everyone is enjoying themselves in a responsible manner.”
Check out the video below and join us in applauding his actions for preventing another surefire festival fatality.
