Video from the event shows at least nine performers on stage, dancing with the loud music.

Suddenly sparks appear from two pyrotechnic devices at the front of the stage and the one on the right appears to explode.

Ms Sainz then falls floor as her fellow performers rush to try and help her.

The performance was suspended after the incident, which occurred shortly before 2am this morning.

At the time of the performance, about 1,000 people were next to the stage in an esplanade behind the town square.

The 112 emergency service confirmed the accident happened at 1.49am and about 25 minutes later the ambulance arrived. 

At least nine other people can be seen on the stage, which also used smoke machines, before the device appeared to malfunction
