Report: EDM Festival Will Test Your Drugs For Purity
July 7, 2015 at 8:42 AM (PT)
This weekend's three-day EVOLVE FESTIVAL in ANTIGONISH, NOVA SCOTIA, highlighting EDM music, will perform a rare service for concert-goers. According to the CANADIAN BROADCASTING CORP., organizers of the event will offer patrons free drug testing to make sure their product is pure in an attempt to reduce the chance of overdoses.
Starting FRIDAY, attendees can submit a small sample of their “mind enhancers” to festival staff, who will provide them with a breakdown of the chemical makeup.
Producers are trying to avoid the tragedy that rocked the NEW YORK CITY music fest ELECTRIC ZOO in 2013, when two people died from fatal doses of ecstasy.
Three EVOLVE fans were hospitalized last year for taking a different drug than what they thought they had taken.
This year's edition is headlined by KEYS N KRATES.
