Carlton will investigate an incident involving Mitch Robinson after the player was involved in a fight at a music festival on Saturday.

Amateur video footage aired on ''Channel Nine'' showed Robinson and another man throwing punches at each other during the 'Big Day Out' festival in Melbourne.

The pair then wrestled with each other on the ground before the vision ended.

Carlton released a statement on Sunday afternoon that acknowledged they were aware of the incident.

"The Carlton Football Club has been made aware of an incident involving Mitch Robinson at the Big Day Out music festival on Saturday 26 January," the statement read.

"The club is currently investigating the matter and will make no further comment."

Robinson has played 67 matches for the Blues since being drafted at pick 40 in the 2009 AFL Draft.

    Mitch plays a hard brand of football. But wait untill all the facts are investigated. Let's not have trial by media. Football players are also targeted by same of the public. lets not condem just because its a footballer. Fair play for all. cheers

    Big day out is no more than a bogan drunken fest these days, and the organisers have catered for common uncultered australians with the most crapiest bands that bogans like , im surprised there hasnt been more violence .

    Most people have the sense to avoid putting themselves in situations that could lead to trouble, others don;t have the sense to do that

    I dont deny that Robinson plays his footy hard, as do a lot of other players from the other teams but it seems to me that every now and then we find that a situation may arise where the player is not the insigator. We may have a chicken and rooster scenario where Robo was out with friend and a nutter tried it on. Until we have the facts of the matter why dont we pull our heads in.

    Yet another AFL meat-head insecure about his masculinity. They are all the same, and AFL attracts the same kind of fans.

    This punk is a loose cannon on the footy field. Seems he's no different in public. He'll get cleaned up somewhere along the line. Every "dog" has his day, his shouldn't be to far away !

    Hmmm...a display of aggression, lack of restraint, composure and discipline on show for all to see. Why would you pay money to see a plethora of good bands at a huge festival and engage in fights? The young man needs a cup of chai tea and a lesson in common sense. Peace folks
