Rave Drug Report Sparks Controversy

(Radio.com) An investigative report by the L.A. Times highlighting the connection between large-scale raves (specifically those promoted by event firms Go Ventures and Insomniac) and a series of drug-related deaths has sparked Insomniac founder Pasquale Rotella to launch an online call to action against the newspaper's claims.

The story details 14 drug-related deaths that have occurred at Insomniac and Go Ventures events since 2006.

"As part of their mission to twist facts to suit their sensational story, the L.A. Times treated the opinions of a few people as gospel, turned everyone who enjoys electronic music events into villains, and ignored anyone that did not agree with their biased opinion," reads the letter Rotella posted to his Instagram account in response to the front-page story.

"Rather than addressing the real issue, rampant drug use in the United States, Rong-Gong "Ron" Lin II and his team preferred to attack our company, our events, our music and Pasquale instead of doing any credible research on health and safety issues facing large music festivals across the world," the letter added. more on this story
