Los Angeles Task Force Discusses Future of EDM Festivals, Safety

After some drug-related deaths at HARD Events in Pomona, California, this year – there's been plenty of uncertainty about the future of “raves” or EDM venues in the region. With new security measures that took care of criminal activity, the last event went well but there's still a lot to be done.

The Los Angeles Task Force Discussed the future of EDM Festivals and safety last Thursday. There's been speculation for a while that law enforcement might have an suggest a ban after HARD Summer this year.

Emanuel Sferios, founder of the nonprofit organization DanceSafe, was in attendance at the meeting and recorded his public message while attending and a personal response on the website for his movie about MDMA use. You can see the video below.

“They're taking massive doses because the education isn't there,” Sferios said.

Sferios made plenty of valid points that support ways law enforcement could do a better Job of communicating to attendees how to be prepared and safely “rage.””

“I know we can't change federal drug laws here. But we can as a local community prioritize a certain approach,” Sferios added.

Some new pamphlets, also below, show how police are helping more kids and festival attendees with ways to encourage Sferios's harm-reducing agenda.

Plenty of ideas have been raised lately and you can read more about them and the work of Sferios here (and the review of the event).

Watch a video below from Sferios at the meeting uploaded by MDMA: The Movie on YouTube.
