Defqon. 1 was canceled after the controversial music festival was startled by the death of a man and a woman who died of suspected overdoses.

The festival announced the announcement on Thursday afternoon and explained that they could not find a suitable location for the event.

& # 39; Unfortunately, the Sydney International Regatta Center and its subsidiaries have withdrawn their support for the event, & # 39; said festival organizers in a statement.

& # 39; Despite our efforts, we were unable to find a suitable replacement location for the event in September. & # 39;

Defqon. I thanked the loyal fans who visited the festival in the last decade, despite the controversy.

& # 39; To our fans, ambassadors, and all others who have contributed to the incredible memories we have created over the past ten years: from the depths of our orange heart, we want to thank everyone for your continued support, dedication and for creating the most epic family you can imagine. & # 39;

The festival said they would try to find a suitable alternative location, but & # 39; are unsure if and when we come back & # 39 ;.

Revelers were encouraged to fly abroad to enjoy one of the 15 countries that will be organizing the hardstyle festival this year.

Emergency services were called at the music festival in Penrith, in the west of Sydney, at 9 p.m. on Saturday, September 15, 2018, after a man, 23, and 21-year-old woman had collapsed.

The couple were both taken to Nepean hospital where they died shortly thereafter.

More to come
