Riot In LA

 A documentary on the Electric Light Daisy rave was closed down because tonight’s premier was by invitation only and others tried to crash the party. The crowds refused to disperse.  Cop cars were flipped.  There were fights. There is supposedly mass arrests right now.

There seems to have been some social media manipulation.   Kaskade, a top American DJ and a musician, sent out tweets. He sent out this tweet early this afternoon.

Then about 7 he sent two more.

News choppers overhead. The man trying to shut us down. Hang on I am coming!!! This is crazy.

Everybody CHILL OUT!!! The cops are freaking out. BE SAFE AND LET’S HAVE SOME FUN!

Then, as the riot grew a cop car was “smothered.”  He sent these in rapid succession.

EVERYONE CHILL NOW!!! The block party has officially been shut down! BUT THIS IS TOO CRAZY AND WE NEED TO BE SAFE!

I AM REALLY CONCERNED FOR EVERYONES SAFETY AT THIS POINT! PLEASE RELAX

EVERYONE NEEDS TO GO HOME NOW! I DON’T WANT THIS TO REFLECT BADLY ON EDM OR WHAT WE ARE ABOUT. BE RESPECTFUL AND CHILL OUT!!!

  • yeah, mass arrests. The 400 police called have the 200 kids who refused to disperse surrounded… from the noise from my house, it’s being WAYYYYYY overblown. They have several hundred police on the scene, and a couple hundred more on alert.

  • Wow. All this over a film? LA? Lots ‘o Cops? Tweets? Violence? Rubber bullets?
    Glad we’re safe in the redwoods where cooler minds and ‘tudes prevail.
    The video trailer showed a pretty cool party going on….

  • That was the Electric Daisy Festival. It was a movie about the festivals that are like a big rave with carnival rides.

  • I mean it was the Electric Daisy Carnival. It is both a carnival and a festival/
