Hobart [AAP]

Two more women have come forward to police saying they were sexually assaulted at Tasmania’s Falls Festival.

Five women have now reported sexual assaults, including an alleged rape, at the annual music festival.

Police earlier said two incidents occurred in the mosh pit area of the festival, being held at Marion Bay, about an hour’s drive from Hobart.

A young girl was assaulted on Thursday night during DJ Hot Dub Time Machine and another during hip-hop artist Illy’s performance.

A third incident in the camping grounds on Thursday night was also reported.

The festival also suffered through a crowd crush this year, in the aftermath of which 19 people were treated in hospital, though none were seriously injured.
