If youre from toronto you probably heard about the oh so sudden ban on EDM festivals and concerts and the Ex. This all started with a jealous nightclub owner that was loosing profit and blamed it on us teenagers being dangerous with drugs and all. (even though the numbers of deaths and drug use for his nightclub are much higher then the edm events that take place at the ex… like once month or so)
This is extremely unfair to everyone that enjoys these festivals and the music and experience. Especially for the ones who actually go there sober and not pushing this to happen. This doesnt ban all festivals from happening in Toronto but it does take away one of the biggest and greatest venues! Now were stuck like the sound academy which is tiny and absolute crap.
They think by stopping this will stop teenagers do drugs majestically. Oh Mayor Ford how silly of you to think that because Im pretty sure youve smoked crack in your home.
Dada Life Compound was supposed to perform on April 25(i think) at the Direct Energy Centre which is located in the EX. They unfortunately had to move because of the ban…. and guess where ! The sound academy.. yay. Everyones complaining.
Please help us lift the ban!! Reblog this and let everyone know and to sign this petition to bring it back!
P.S I dont care if youre some ‘edm’ hater or whatever. Just hear me out what if they banned your favorite genre of music playing at the best venues? You have to go to these small crappy ones that doesnt even fit everyone (literally steve aoki tour october 2013). So please help!
