An Irish festival headlined by Swedish House Mafia ended in tragedy, with nine people stabbed and one fatality.

22-year-old Raymond Donnan was arrested on claims of four stabbings, with other incidents resulting from knife fights and broken bottles. Donnan appeared in court and was charged with assault causing harm, possession of a knife, violent disorder and public order offences.

Another man in his early twenties died of a suspected drug overdose.

Swedish House Mafia, who recently announced their impending break up, released the following statement:

"We played a festival in Ireland at the weekend and reports of incidents are coming to us... We didn't see anything but have asked for all the info and are respectful of the promoter's need to wait and give us all the clear facts. When we know more we will liase with the Festival promoter directly on what we can do to help but for now we have to respect their request to us that we remain quiet and respectful of their event safety processes. The festival itself was amazing and we had no idea this had happened and neither did the other numerous artists who played. Once we know all the facts we will deal with it in the best way we can. Thank you. Swedish House Mafia."
