Speaking about the incident, Mensa said that he had snuck in on the first day of the festival with no problems. However, going back for another day proved much more difficult. “I was trying to get in and they had upped security from the day before – it was just impossible to get in like I got in the day before,” he said. “I was trying to do something crazy, climbing down the train structure over on Monroe over a bridge. And I touched a transformer on my arm.”

Mensa’s new single ‘Down On My Luck’ is currently at Number 37 in the Official UK Singles Chart.
