The bad reputation EDM gets concerning drugs seems to never end with situations like this occurring so often. This past weekend at Chasing Summer, 17 people were transported to the hospital for substance abuse.
According to authorities, of those who were sent, 11 were in stable condition, five were in serious condition, and one was considered life-threatening, the ages ranging from 18 to 38. This is all too similar to what went down at the festival last year, with 10 being transported to the hospital.
In their response, Union Event’s discusses their safety precautions, counters the arguments made about the lack of water at the festival, and states that they plan to “Continually improve upon an already comprehensive emergency response plan.”
