Video surfaces of fireworks landing in the crowd at Transmission Festival
Festivals can feel like a utopian bubble where nothing goes wrong, but given the number of productions each year and the logistics involved, sometimes the margin for human error proves too much.
Transmission Festival is the latest example of what can go wrong when all seems right. Just after a stunning visual moment happens via strobes, LED walls, and lasers, fireworks launch off the stage landing in the crowd and not passing over them. Luckily, no severe injuries or deaths were reported. A video shows the malfunction within the arena.
