Nick Bonnie aged 30 collapsed at the warehouse project in greater Manchester early on Saturday. It is thought that he took ecstasy which caused his death.
The police are now investigating to find out if it was a bad batch of ecstasy that caused his death.
His devastated family want this to be a lesson to all that consider taking ecstasy and want to raise awareness of the dangers.
In a statement his parents Pauline and Andy said: “Nick Bonnie lost his life tragically, senselessly and needlessly in a nightclub in Manchester on a ‘lads’ weekend. This has devastated the lives of [his family and friends].
“Everyone who knew Nick was aware he loved life, lived it to the max and in making one stupid mistake he has cost himself his life.
“We hope that after reading this, we may have gone some way in helping anyone/everyone in the realisation that drinking and use of any illicit drugs are a killer with consequences that will devastate lives for ever.”
Police have confirmed that a number of people have received treatment after taking drugs at the venue.
