Man Dies at EDC Las Vegas 2017

It looks like everyone’s favorite hit maker was booed off stage yesterday at the Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas, but DJ Khaled claimed that they “sabotaged” his set with technical glitches. As of Monday morning, the Clark County coroner’s office had yet to determine a cause or manner of death.The electronic dance music festival, which this year featured Porter Robinson, Green Velvet, Paul Van Dyk, Borgore, Zedd, Marshmello and Martin Garrix, has been plagued by drug-related deaths since 2010, the last year it was held in Los Angeles.Statistics provided by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department show that fewer medical calls were made – 305 on Saturday compared with 443 on Friday – though five people were taken to the hospital. Beverly Hills-based organizers Insomniac and Live Nation have responded with zero tolerance drug policies and increased medical patrols, but the deaths are persistent.Day two of EDC ended with roughly 135,000 people in attendance, according to festival organizers. A third person was hospitalized after arriving in the valley and died several days later. She collapsed after the last night of the festival.In 2012, a 22-year-old premed student at the University of Arizona, Emily McCaughan, experienced paranoid delusions after taking ecstasy at EDC and died after she fell from her Strip hotel room’s window. “Mike was the life of the party”.”He was always trying to find a way to give back”, his wife said.
