A number of young people have been treated for drugs and alcohol related illnesses at a DJ Hardwell gig at the Odyssey Arena in Belfast.

The BBC reports that the Northern Ireland ambulance service has declared the scene a 'major incident', with several ambulances and a doctor treating those involved at  the scene.

A source at the scene tells Gigwise that emergency services were called when St John's Ambulance at the Odyssey Arena were overwhelmed by the number of unwell audience members, with more than six ambulances attending the scene. 

"Belfast, are you ready to party?" Hardwell asked his followers on Facebook earlier today, when announcing additional tickets for tonight's show. 

Reports suggest that up to 60 people have been treated at the venue with Twitter users criticising drug dealers at the event. Several people have shared details on social media, but as yet, nothing further has been confirmed by the authorities.
