Around 5,000 youngsters have gathered on the Costa Dorada for a five-day festival of late night-drinking and debauchery.

“Saloufest” promotes itself as a sporting event, but locals have been shocked by the alcohol-fueled antics of many of the 18 to 23-year-olds.

Just 24 hours after the partying started in the town of Salou, nine people had been treated by paramedics for drunkenness, with five of those requiring hospital treatment for alcohol poisoning.
