Four men were rushed to the hospital at Garage Nation Festival in east London last night after an apparent knife fight broke out in the VIP section.


According to Metropolitan Police, two men were taken to the Major Trauma Centre via air ambulance with deep stab wounds — one with what was described as “life-changing” injuries.

Two other victims had minor “stab and slash” wounds, not nearly as serious. One saw himself to a nearby hospital and was later released, while the other was treated on site.

Some blame the horrific act of violence on lax security at the music festival and have spoken out on social media to express their concerns. Meanwhile, organizers seem to be doing everything they can by cooperating and aiding with the ongoing investigation.

A spokesman from Garage Nation’s promoters said: “We run a strict four-stage policy search regime. The security was procured and agreed in line with the planning that has been ongoing for 12 months.”

Everyone stay safe out there.
