In December 2016 a group of patrons at the Falls Music and Arts Festival (the Falls Festival) in Lorne, Victoria were left injured and traumatised after a stampede at the music event. It is alleged that at approximately 9.50pm on Friday 30 December 2016, a large group of people were injured when attempting to exit one of the venues within the event.
On 15 March 2017, Maddens Lawyers issued proceedings on behalf of all persons who were injured (either physically or psychologically) as a result of the incident.
A Court ordered mediation is scheduled for 19 October 2018. The matter has been set down for trial, commencing on 19 November 2018.
