The promoter of the troubled Electric Daisy Carnival rave last month, where a 15-year-old who later died apparently took ecstasy, is moving to an 18-and-older format for his next big event, the Audiotistic Festival July 24 at the National Orange Show Events Center San Bernardino.
“What he’s doing for the first time is he’s going to 18-and-over,” Dan Jimenez, general manager of the Orange Show venue, told LA Weekly. “He felt bad that someone of that age was there.”
Electric Daisy Carnival drew as many as 200,000 people over two days and marketed itself as an event for those 16-and-older, but a source who worked at the event told the Weekly that IDs were not checked.
