Alicia Champion collapsed onstage at the San Diego Indie Music Fest Saturday night, November 5. The audience fell silent as security and staff rushed to her aid. One staffer said Alicia "hasn't eaten well or slept in days" in preparation for the music festival that she and Danielle LoPresti co-promote. Amid speculation that Champion was having a seizure, LoPresti said, "She's not epileptic."
The festival continued with its final two acts after Champion was wheeled to the ambulance and rushed to the hospital. As emergency personnel lifted her from the stage, she was conscious and talking.
