AN acrobat has died after falling 100ft from a suspended cage in front of 35,000 people at Mad Cool music festival in Spain.

The performer, named only as Pedro, plunged to his death moments before headliners Green Day came on stage – but the band decided to play on.

An acrobat has plunged to his death during a performance at Mad Cool music festival in Spain

Fans have slammed the punk band for continuing the show, with one writing: “I’m ashamed of you”.

Green Day has since tweeted: “We just got off stage at Mad Cool Festival to disturbing news.

“A very brave artist named Pedro lost his life tonight in a tragic accident.

“Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.”

Disturbing footage shows the moment the acrobat fell to his death above the crowd.

He was performing a stunt in a small cage during the Prince song ‘Purple Rain’ when tragedy struck.

British actor Adrian Randle who was at the festival wrote: “I couldn’t in good faith stay to watch Green Day perform after that.

“Thoughts go out to the family of the performer.”

Spanish newspaper El Mundo said the show was delayed for about 30 minutes as police spoke with festival organisers before the show was allowed to continue.
