This Halloween was a sad weekend for electronic music; police cracked down at HARD Day of the Dead and Escapse: Psycho Circus, two of LA’s biggest annual events. Almost 500 individuals were arrested between the two-day festivals, primarily for drug posession, public intoxication, and using fake ID’s.
This marks the beginning of a dark time for our culture, which has begun to attract tremendous scrutiny from authorities and concerned parents. As events continue to be raided and/or cancelled, we strongly urge you to be careful and always party responsibly. Luckily, there were no drug-related fatalities reported, a problem that has led to severe consequences for a number of promoters.
