2023 WATERBOMB Festival in Osaka Canceled Following Fatal Accident

Heartbreaking news shakes the entertainment world as the highly anticipated 2023 WATERBOMB JAPAN event in Osaka takes a somber turn. The festival, which was set to showcase a thrilling lineup of Korean acts and create a water-filled extravaganza, has been canceled following a tragic accident during a rehearsal that claimed the life of a worker.

Reports indicate that during a morning rehearsal on July 14, a water cannon, propelled at a staggering speed of 120 kilometers per hour, accidentally struck a male worker in the face, rendering him unconscious. Despite immediate medical attention, the worker succumbed to what is believed to be a brain contusion, leaving everyone involved devastated.

In response to the unforeseen tragedy, WATERBOMB JAPAN took to their official social media accounts to share a heartfelt announcement. They expressed their deep remorse for the inconvenience caused to fans and all those involved who were eagerly anticipating the event. With heavy hearts, they made the difficult decision to cancel the performances in Osaka and pledged to take appropriate measures to prevent such incidents from occurring in the future.

WATERBOMB JAPAN had planned to bring the excitement and joy of their renowned festival to Osaka, featuring an incredible lineup of artists, including D-LITE (BIGBANG’s Daesung), MAMAMOO+, Jessi, and Kwon Eunbi. However, the unforeseen tragedy has cast a somber shadow over the event, leading to its cancellation.
