A woman died during the opening leg of Stereosonic in Sydney, Australia at the weekend.

Reports state 25-year-old Sylvia Choi was taken to hospital, where she was pronounced dead at 9.30pm on November 28, after apparently taking an ecstasy tablet along with alcohol and MDMA mixed into water.

The festival posted on Facebook: "Totem Onelove [the festival organisers] conveys our deepest condolences to the friends and family of the patron who tragically passed away on Saturday night at Sydney Stereosonic.

"As it is a matter with the NSW Police and Coroner we cannot make any further statements or comment. We appeal to our audience that they stay safe and look out for each other."

According to the 9News report, 120 people were seen to by paramedics for drug-related illnesses, while a woman thought to be from the UK was put into an induced coma after falling "seriously ill" at the festival venue, Sydney Showground. However, her condition improved and she was discharged from hospital on November 29.

The festival continues on December 5 in Adelaide and Melbourne, before finishing in Brisbane on December 6.
