Please enjoy this video of one of The Chainsmokers falling off stage
When you play hundreds of shows a year, odds are that eventually one of them will go wrong.
So spare a thought for Alex Pall of The Chainsmokers, who’s likely nursing some aches and pains this week. In a video filmed side of stage at last weekend’s KAABOO Music Festival in San Diego, he can be seen falling rather spectacularly from the DJ booth he’d been dancing on. To his credit, Pall’s not afraid to laugh at himself – anything to distract from that interview, right?
Lol for the record I am okay and tougher than I look… And Clearly not coordinated

It’s not the first time a DJ has sustained injuries in the line of duty. In 2014 Tiesto was forced to cancel a show after knocking himself out on an LED screen on his way to the stage, while this year Paul Van Dyk had to be airlifted to hospital after falling from the stage at A State Of Trance in Utrecht (er, probably shouldn’t laugh about that one). And who could forget that video of Skrillex’s face connecting at high speed with a stage prop during a show in Mexico?
Please enjoy the footage of Alex Pall stacking it below.
