Organisers of upcoming music fest Life In Color decide to pull the plug after recent drug-related deaths at Future Music Fest Asia.

In another blow for ravers, Life In Color, dubbed the “world’s largest paint party”, that was scheduled to happen at Sepang International Go-Kart Circuit on April 19 has been cancelled.

The organisers – Life In Color, Future Sound Asia and Zouk KL – in an official announcement posted on their Facebook page stated that the tough decision was made out of respect for the country and people of Malaysia.

The post said: “Life In Color wishes to announce that due to the unfortunate events that took place this past weekend, we have decided to cancel the upcoming Life In Color Malaysia. We would like to extend our sincerest apologies to our wonderful fans. We appreciate the love and support of our Malaysian fans, and our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of those affected.”
