On the other side of the world, there have been 2 fatal overdoses at an Australian music festival. A young man and woman collapsed at Defqon and went into cardiac arrest on Saturday. They were pronounced dead later at the hospital. 3 more are in critical condition and 700 out of the 30,000 attendees have received medical attention. 

Australian police:

"This is an unsafe event and I'll be doing everything I can to make sure it never happens again."

Ecstasy, cocaine, and GHB were the main illicit drugs found at the festival. Defqon has a zero-tolerance policy but will probably have to fight to continue their annual event.
