The attendees narrate what happened and admit that the force of the wind made them panic: “After what has happened there is no desire for anything”
The death last night at the festival Jellyfish Sunbeach of a person and the tremendous sandstorm that has destroyed part of the stage and has forced the festival to be suspended has been a shock for the thousands of young people who since last Wednesday had begun to arrive in Cullera to enjoy one of the most important festivals to be held this summer in the Valencian Community.
With the first light of the day, and after what happened at dawn, people were leaving the venue slowly. Pietro and María, who came from Galicia, left Cullera with all the tents and belongings from the campsite. “We were in the bathrooms and suddenly a tremendous wind broke out, as the arch was moving, we decided to leave, we didn’t even get to pee. I wanted to leave, I was terrified to see how he moved, In the end, the entrance arch to the bathroom ended up falling on top of some people & rdquor ;, they explain.

“There is no desire for anything”
All festival-goers who leave the festival agree that although the organization has decreed a “temporary suspension & rdquor ;, the weather “is not changing & rdquor; and “after what has happened, there is no desire for anything anymore & rdquor ;.
Diego and Mohamed, from Valencia, summed up the situation as “chaotic and confused & rdquor;. “You know more outside than inside, since four everything has been uncertainty, nobody knew what was happening & rdquor ;, they explain. They were on the main stage. “We were in the middle of the track and it started to rain a little but at the same time it was unbearably hot and suddenly a lot of air. We see a couple running by, and they tell me that posters have fallen and there are people bleeding. Suddenly two police cars get into the big stage. They told us to separate ourselves from the stage and bars. Everyone in the center of the room. Until they began to evict us & rdquor ;, they explain.
“Three minutes earlier we were right where the stage piece fell from.”
Three minutes earlier we were right where the stage piece fell from. Luckily we changed area. We only think about that & rdquor; Maria, Mollie and Rafa explained. “It is shameful that with the money they collect they do not guarantee security in the festival structures. That has to be supervised by some professional person. It is very sad, it tastes very bad, especially for those who have died or are injured & rdquor ;, they concluded as they left the venue. “We no longer feel like partying & rdquor ;.
