They released a statement saying they were sorry for the incident, but had chose to continue with the final act of the night "for security reasons".

"I've just seen a guy fall and die, all projected on the giant screen".

Due to the tragic event at Mad Cool this evening we felt it was not appropriate to play.

Mr Monroy was director of In Fact performing arts company in Portslade, Brighton. "We are torn apart". Our thoughts go out to those affected.

He was performing to Prince's Purple Rain next to the main stage, shortly before Green Day's headline appearance.

"I can't wait to see my lovely boyfriend", he wrote in a Thursday Facebook post, featuring a drawing of the two.

"Love, come to my arms!"




Slowdive, who were also scheduled to perform, chose to cancel their set.

In a statement released Saturday, the festival said it "regrets the bad accident" and that the decision to continue with Green Day's set was made for "security reasons".

"We are all very sad to hear the news, it is the most awful news and our hearts go out to his friends and family", Mosley told BBC.

Speaking to the BBC, the hotel's general manager Andrew Mosley said: "We are all very sad to hear the news, it is the most bad news and our hearts go out to his friends and family".

Today (8 July), the festival will pay "an emotional tribute" to Aunión. He died from his injuries as the show went on, with Green Day claiming they were not told of the accident before they took to the stage.

Mad Cool festival organizers were also criticized for what some people said was a lack of safety at the show and for allowing the Green Day to perform after the incident.
