sleezypeezywroteSun, 04 Nov 2012I think michael jackson and jimmy saviles lost souls had a hand in this
BRKUNwroteFri, 02 Nov 2012maybe this is a wake up call to the 'lets get as fucked as possible as mosh to aggresive electronic noise'
prussellwroteFri, 02 Nov 2012While his music is pretty far from what I play and listen to, I can't blame Mr. Aoki here; this falls squarely on the promoter(s) and venue owner(s). I've managed operations for large festivals for years, and one of our main jobs is to design fire exit routes, escape/contingency plans, and manage crowd logistics.

It might not be to your (or my taste) but this was just a case of two young people having a good time listening to the music that made them happy. I wish people would expend their thoughts and views on the music they like rather than going on and on and on about the stuff that they hate.
