ApeFest NFT event eye and skin injuries likely caused by UV lights.

The Bored Ape Yacht Club has concluded its investigation into what caused at least 15 convention attendees to suffer eye pain, vision problems, and sunburnt skin during ApeFest 2023, determining that UV-A emitting lights were likely behind the injuries.

A similar situation was reported in 2017 after specialist lights used for disinfection were incorrectly installed during a Hypebeast event.
