Electric Zoo Festival Canceled Following Two Fatalities


According to

This is such sad news. Why is this happening? This is the third festival in recent years that was shut down due to drug related deaths. Is this drug use part of the “scene” that comes with electronic and dubstep music? Is this what happens when kids want to “experience” something different when they’re listening to music? Why do we need drugs to alter things for us and for us to enjoy life? Where is the security? Where are the people looking after these kids who are overdosing on drugs? 

According to Billboard, there isn’t much that can be done about the drug use. They write, “No amount of security personnel, barricades, et cetera could prevent something like this. Unfortunately, however, ecstasy and other drugs have become the culture of some of these festivals.”

Such sad news. Our thoughts are with those affected by these fatalities.
