A woman has gone overboard at the Mad Decent Boat Party.
Hosted by Diplo’s label, the annual cruise set sail on Thursday 12th of November for a four day musical blow out, travelling from Miami to Mexico. Its line up featured Skrillex, Dillon Francis and A-Trak, amongst other EDM heavy hitters.
Sailing has since been thwarted, as a woman has intentionally jumped overboard as the ship sailed into the Yucatan Channel, causing the good ship EDM to turn around to the last point the woman was spotted.
All sets have supposedly been cancelled, and passengers had been asked to return to their cabins as the ship goes to look for her. Sources state that the boat is eerily quiet as night has fallen.
Martin Solveig, who is currently on the ship, has Tweeted the following as the search continues on into the night:
This incidence will be another unwanted blow to the reputation of EDM festivals, as with tales of TomorrowWorld’s strandings and multiple arrests at HARD festival, it seems that bad news outweighs the good after every occasion.
