DVBBS have been dropped from the line-up of Sziget festival in Hungary.

Organisers made the decision after two women were found unconscious in the Canadian duo's dressing room following a performance at Sziget's sister festival, Balaton Sound, on Saturday night.

Both members of the EDM act and two male friends were then questioned by police on Sunday after three of the men failed on-the-spot drugs tests at Liszt International Airport in Budapest.

According to a police report, the three were charged with possession of narcotics and then released from custody.

However, as a police investigation about what happened in DVBBS's dressing room is ongoing, Sziget organisers have decided to cancel the pair's performance at the festival, which takes place between August 10 and 17.

It's reported by Hungarian news sources that two women were found in the dressing room after the event had finished and DVBBS had left the site. They're said to have been partying with friends following DVBBS' performance and although they were taken to hospital, no medical attention was needed. Police say there are no signs of sexual abuse.

On Tuesday, DVBBS told Billboard: “We are shocked that some attendees of the Balaton Festival (sic) were victims of events which got them hospitalized. Police asked our cooperation for the investigation and of course we did what we could. Police confirmed there isn’t any link between us and what happened, that’s why we took off a couple of hours later to our next gig in ibiza. There is another case going on independently from this in connection with marijuana and we gladly answer all questions regarding this and help the police to solve the case. Our thoughts are with the victims and their families."

The Hungarian police are to release a new statement on Monday.
