The Electronic Music Association of Canada (EMAC) says that it will no longer accept electronic music requests for music festivals or other events because it considers them to be too dangerous.
The association issued a statement on Tuesday, saying that “it is the responsibility of the electronic music community to ensure the safety and security of our event participants and exhibitors.”
The EMABC said that in its opinion, electronic music festivals, such as EDC, were dangerous for festivalgoers and exhibiting venues, and that electronic music is no longer allowed at many events because of its potential to harm people.
“The EMEA will continue to take all necessary measures to ensure that we are providing the safest, most efficient and environmentally-friendly event spaces available,” the statement said.
It added that the association had decided to cease accepting requests for electronic music due to the increasing numbers of incidents in which people were injured, killed or injured in the past few years.
According to the statement, the EMA’s actions “have had a devastating impact on the industry, both as a community and as a festival industry.”
