As many of you may know, Sasha Rodriguez (15), passed away after collapsing at this year's edition of Electric Daisy Carnival. Two days after her passing, Coliseum officials placed a temporary moratorium on contracting any future festivals at the venue. The same officials were to meet today, July 16th, to determine whether or not EDM festivals of this caliber were to remain banned from the venue.
The hearing has come and gone and the results are out. According to Silicon Valley's MercuryNews.com, "the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum has voted to continue indefinitely a moratorium on booking raves at the historic venue..." However, the festivals that have been planned for the adjacent Sports Arena in August (Love Festival) and October (Monster Massive) will continue as planned with stricter guidelines to be followed. Both events have confirmed an 18+ age limit and ER staff will be required to be on hand rather than just Ambulances and EMTs.
