Kalleby Freitas da Rosa, aka DJ Kaleb, was performing at Brazil’s Atmosphere Festival when extreme weather caused the stage to topple. Da Rosa was rushed to the hospital but died upon arrival. He was 30. Three others were injured in the incident.
The festival has released a statement on Facebook: “We always cherish the security of our audience, following all the processes, reports and authorizations requested by the local authorities. And to our audience we will keep them informed of all our actions to keep the truth about the facts that have occurred. We’re sorry, we lost a friend, an artist. Our priority is to assist the wounded and their families. We thank the military brigade and the fire department for all their assistance.”
Our thoughts are with the De Rosa’s family and friends.
