Update: We are receiving confirmation that the reason for closure was due to heavy underage drinking and the subsequent passing out of some of attendants. The event was 16+ and served alcohol, making the appropriation and consumption of alcohol by minors easier. Over 40 ambulances were spotted at the venue, be safe.
Update 2: As of now we have received confirmation that around 100 individuals have been hospitalized as a result of alcohol or drug intoxication. There have been no official reports concerning the possible fatalities that were rumored earlier. There have been accounts of the arrest of helicopter pilot Michael Croissant, who attempted to land among the crowd as attendees were trying to leave the venue, putting many individuals in harms way. This tragedy is the apparent result of a lack of security, preparation and overall care of all the attendees’ health and safety.
