MUSIC FESTIVAL SHUT DOWN AFTER DRUG DEATHS

FestivalThe final day of New York dance-music festival, Electric Zoo was canceled after two fans died, and four others were hospitalized over the first two days of the festival. Police believe that all of the incidents were related to the drug MDMA. New York City officials released a statement, saying, “During the first two days of the Electric Zoo music festival, two concert-goers have died, and at least four others became critically ill and have been placed in intensive care at area hospitals. Definitive causes of death have not yet been determined, however, both appear to have involved the drug MDMA (ecstasy, or molly).  The Electric Zoo organizers have worked with City officials to reduce health risks at this event, but in view of these occurrences, the safest course is to cancel the remaining day of the event.”

 

The festival was due to run until yesterday (Sunday September 1st), and the final day’s line-up would have included Sebastian Ingrosso, Steve Aoki, Diplo, and Zedd, among others. The festival website released a statement, saying, “The founders of Electric Zoo send our deepest condolences to the families of the two people who passed away this weekend. Because there is nothing more important to us than our patrons, we have decided in consultation with the New York City Parks Department that there will be no show today.”
