Avicii

Ecstasy Triggered Mass Hospitalization

At Avicii Concert

EXCLUSIVE

Avicii Ecstasy
Ecstasy played a central role in the 911 emergency Wednesday night that sent dozens of Avicii concertgoers to the hospital ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources in Boston tell TMZ ... some of the concertgoers were high on ecstasy and it created a dangerous situation, because the pit area was extremely hot and crowded.  Dehydration is a common side effect for ecstasy users.  Many of those taken to the ER were severely dehydrated.

What's unclear ... where all the concertgoers got the ecstasy and if a particular batch feuled the emergency.

One concertgoer tells TMZ ... in addition to hard drugs, the place smelled like weed and puke and some people were so wasted they were falling down stairs, urinating in the back rows, and passing out. 

In all, 36 people were taken to local hospitals and additional 50 were treated at the scene.

Not promoting Ecstasy use, but they do have testing kits to make sure you're not injesting poison. And never ever drink alcohol on Ecstasy.

It never ceases to amaze me that a group of tree hugging organic eating GMO hating vaccine avoiding worry warts will eagerly ingest something a stranger cooked up in a mobile home toilet.
