SWEDISH House Mafia have said they had no idea of the violent scenes that were taking place when they headlined the Phoenix Park on Saturday.

"Reports of incidents are coming to us. We didn't see anything but have asked for all the info," they said.

In a statement on their Facebook page the DJ group said: "When we know more we will liaise with the festival promoter directly on what we can do to help but for now we have to respect their request that we remain quiet and respectful of their event safety processes.

"The festival itself was amazing and we had no idea this had happened."

The Swedish trio of producers Axwell, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso were all well-known DJs before they began performing together in 2008. Last month they announced that the current tour would be their last.
