Acrobat plunges to death at Mad Cool festival as 35,000 people watched (Photo and video)

An acrobat has died after plunging 100ft to his death in front of 35,000 people at a music festival in Spain.

The horrific accident happened just moments before headliners Green Day were due to come on stage – and organisers chose to continue with the performance.

A tweet from the band’s official account later implied they did not know what had happened before they began playing.

It read: “We just got off stage at Mad Cool Festival to disturbing news.

The victim was named as 42-year-old Pedro Aunion Monroy.

Some of those attending were disgusted with the decision and chose to walk out.

Javier Erquiaga tweeted Green Day and the Mad Cool festival accounts saying: “ashamed of you. An artist died just 20 meters from you and you still play. Worst band on the planet”
“A very brave artist named Pedro lost his life tonight in a tragic accident.
