Promoters of the popular Electric Daisy Festival couldn’t reach an agreement with the city of Los Angeles, so the massive electronic festival is being transferred to Las Vegas.
185,000 people attended EDC in 2010, but the festival’s success was overshadowed by the death of a 15 year old teenager. Ecstasy (of course) was found in her system. A moratorium on raves at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum was enacted shortly thereafter. Even though the ban was lifted late last year, Insomniac Events is still pulling up stakes from LA.
ECD is still scheduled for June 24-25, 2011. There will also be an Electric Daisy Carnival in Dallas, Denver, and Puerto Rico. There’s no info yet on venues, lineups, or tickets on the official site.
Did Los Angeles overreact with their rave ban? Have you ever been to a rave where you couldn’t find drugs? Comment below.
