But local reports said around 1,000 people were in the Blue Lantern club in the town of Corinaldo on the Adriatic coast for a performance by the Italian rapper. "Sadly, six people died and dozens are injured", the fire service said in a Twitter statement.

The ages of the victims weren't immediately given.

The audience at rapper Sfera Ebbasta's concert at the Lanterna Azzurra nightclub ran for the exits after someone sprayed a substance similar to pepper spray, said Italian fire officials and ANSA news agency.

A 16-year-old boy told Ansa that fans were dancing while waiting for the start of the show when the stampede erupted.

The "giving way of two parapets due to the crush of the young people getting out" probably caused the tragedy, Interior Minister Matteo Salvini told RAI.

The boy, who was being treated at a hospital, said at least one of the emergency exits was locked when he tried to flee.
