Indonesian media reported that two Indonesians and a Singaporean collapsed at a North Jakarta music festival in the early hours of Sunday morning. All three cases were drug-related.

JakartaGlobe.com reported that the victims' remains have been sent for autopsy.

The three have been indentified as Isti Rahmawati, 19, Ricky Maahir Muhammad, 18, both from West Jakarta and Singaporean Chua Wen Hu, 26.

Indonesian police said they collapsed at the concert, held at Ancol Beach, and died not long after they were rushed to a hospital in North Jakarta.

Witnesses said they had taken drugs, while a police spokesman said they also consumed alcohol inside the venue.

The 2-day music festival, "A State of Trance", was held from Saturday to Sunday and featured a lineup of international DJs, including Armin van Buuren and Paul van Dyk.

This incident comes shortly after six people died of drug overdose and 14, including nine Singaporeans, were hospitalised at the Future Music Festival Asia in Kuala Lumpur held over the weekend.
