Stormzy paused Boardmasters performance after a crowd surge left three fans in hospital with broken bones

Three teens were rushed to hospital after a crowd surge during the Stormzy set at Boardmasters last weekend.

Fans were pulled over the barrier following a crowd surge during the grime artist’s set. Some fans had reported waiting to see Stormzy for 4 hours and then had to be pulled over the barrier during the start of the set.

Stormzy himself has been praised for stopping the set to calm the crowd and try to stop people pushing forward, however sadly this is almost inevitable at festivals and with Stormy probably gaining the largest croud of the whole weekend, it seemed the arena just was not big enough for all of the people.

People have taken to twitter to voice their opinions on the situation:
