Over two dozen people were injured at Bumbershoot Music & Arts Festival on Saturday night after a metal stage barricade collapsed during Jai Wolf's set. Luckily, the Seattle Fire department has confirmed that there are no serious injuries. It's reported that the incident occurred because too many people were pushing up against the barrier. 

The festival issued a statement on their official Twitter page explaining the incident. In their own words: 

"Saturday night at Bumbershoot Festival there was a steel barricade failure that resulted in several non-life threatening injuries. Those injured were handled by on-site medical teams and further treatment was continued at an area hospital as deemed necessary. We are monitoring the situation and will update as we get more information."

Bumbershoot Music & Arts Festival kicked off August 30th and will end on September 1st. This year's lineup included performances from Rezz, Louis The Child, and more.
