Los Angeles County Supervisor Hilda Solis plans to introduce a motion at today’s board meeting that would ban major music festivals in the Los Angeles county following an investigation into the weekend deaths of two women at the HARD Summer music festival.
Solis states that “I am deeply troubled by the fact that this is the third such death to happen in my district in the last year and a half. No one – no one should have to lose their life while attending a public concert.”
County attorneys are currently investigating whether or not HARD events followed all contractual legalities to ensure the safety of the music festival attendees.
Mary Wickman, county attorney, is aware of another HARD event taking place on September 10th and says “We believe there is another event similar to this one scheduled at the Fairplex in September. That’s a fact that matters to us and we will be operating on a time table to address those issues prior to that date.”
