Festival-goers complained about the deplorable condition in the scorching heat
While some festival-goers were happy with the experience, there were others who complained about the misery and violence at the 100-degree heat when comparing the new festival to a fire fest.
It can’t be underestimated !!!!! lvrsnfrndsfest You created a sheet show for a festival. Shame on you for how you’re already doing it – I was there! It wasn’t the slightest hassle. People were running for their lives !!! # Lovers and friends festival #LoversAndFriendsFest

In several tweets, the sad participants mentioned the lack of cold water in Vegas, limited hydration bus and poor plans for the turbulent situation in Vegas.
Hopefully, I don’t have a long trauma in my life from watching the desperation of people almost dying and trying to escape the heat because of the lack of suitable shade and water. #LoversAndFriendsFest # Lovers and friends festival # Boyfriends and friends

According to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, one participant died after attending the festival over the weekend.
The Clark County Coroner’s Office identified the man as 22-year-old Jacqueline Torres Espinoza without revealing the cause of death.
It came after reports that attendees had run for their lives as the event was reduced to a ‘safety incident’.
Shocked by the misrepresentation of this incident. PPL shouted and fired. They ran for their lives, trampled and bled. The siren is sounding. The fence broke. Running across the main road. I hid in a bathroom, waited and was told to leave the field #LoversAndFriendsFest https://t.co/sARLUGyLAn

Overall, there was a lot of love and hate about the chaotic festival that many people didn’t even believe until it became a reality.
Ok time for a thread for my experience # Lovers and friends festival. People have been calling the festival fake for more than a year. Also a festival seems like a lot of people wanted to fail.
I will have some performance clips on my IG https://t.co/I6y7MxHhwY pic.twitter.com/z39SJRtgMP
