Electric Daisy Carnival Moves To Las Vegas07 April 2011
Organisers of the Electric Daisy Carnival were heavily criticised following the event at the Memorial Coliseum and Exposition Park in Los Angeles, which was headlined by Moby.
Official reports suggest many of the fans injured were caught as crowds rushed the gates and barriers in a bid to force their way into the event, which 185,000 music fans attended.
The promoters, Insomnia, have since hired Investigative Advisory Group, a consulting firm that has experience creating overall safety and security protocols for large venues, to analyse their current and proposed safety protocols and procedures for the company's music festivals throughout the U.S.
They also established an '18 and older' policy for all its dance music festivals after a 15-year-old reveller died from a drug overdose at the festival.
And they're not letting the events of last year's festival halt plans for a 2011 bash - this year's Electric Daisy Carnival will be held at Las Vegas Motor Speedway over the final weekend in June (24-26Jun11).
