On Thursday Insomniac Inc. announced that its trademark rave was postponed until late June and would be held this year in Las Vegas.
Insomniac, Inc. has held raves at the Coliseum and the adjacent Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena for the last 13 years.
Current Coliseum director, Rick Caruso, is pleased with Insomniac, Inc.’s decision to not stage EDC at the Coliseum.
The 2010 rave has been surrounded by controversy after a 15 year-old girl died of an ecstasy overdose and countless other attendees were hospitalized for alcohol and drug related problems.
Earlier this month The Los Angeles Times revealed that Patrick Lynch, former Coliseum director, had allowed Todd DeStefano, the former assistant general manager of events at the Coliseum, to work on the side as a promoter for Insomniac, Inc.
DeStefano was responsible for security and medical services at the 2010 EDC.
Lynch has since resigned as director and Todd DeStefano is currently under investigation by the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office and the California Fair Political Practice Commission for criminal conflict of interest.
