Rapper M.I.A. was forced to cut short her set at a music festival in England after 200 revellers rushed the stage.
The Sri-Lankan born singer was headlining the Big Chill festival in Herefordshire on Saturday when she asked fans to join her for her hit Paper Planes.
M.I.A, whose out-spoken tirades have previously been the subject of much controversy, apparently expected only a few people to join her on stage, she got more than she bargained for when over 200 clambered over safety barriers to rush onto the stage. Event organisers then made a decision to cancel the rest of the set.
Some in the crowd complained of being crushed against the railings during the fracas, but no injuries were reported.
A statement from festival organisers reads: "A spokesperson for M.I.A. thanked the wonderful audience at the Big Chill for the fantastic reception received and apologised for having to cut the set short due to overwhelming demand for fans to come on stage when only a few were expected."
The news comes only weeks after a stampede at a German music festival left 19 people dead and hundreds injured.
