Festivals... how long til they start getting raided?
    #3816676 - 02/22/05 02:04 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

well, its only a matter of time. raves got shut down pretty much, and how long until places like bonaroo and regional gatherings get raided? nothing lasts forever, and i just can't see these things going on unnoticed for much longer. deaths from OD's and the like. drugs just flow at these things, at an unhealthy level. how long?

Well the fest I was at last week they said the police come through regularly, and some hippies went to jail that day for digging a huge ditch so the pigs couldn't drive up into the festivities

See the thing is if they started trying to bust everyone its going to lead to a riot with the police being severly outnumbered.

It would have to be one big operation to "raid" somthing like bonnaroo.

A HUGE one.

i would think it wouldn't be long. across the board, all LEO needs to do is checkout jambase.com and they have a list of definite drug busts. it wouldn't be hard for them to legally gain access to these places, either, whether they are on private land or not.

you know even if they raided a gathering all they could get are a few posession charges because most of the drugs will already be your bodies.. and they can't do anything about that.... just don't bring anything that would make you worry..hehehe

People go down in cuffs at every festivel, if not at the festivel at hotels, raids are a daily accurence in any life where "crime" is prevelent.

i don't think their would be a riot. people at this things would dive for cover if they saw paddy wagons rolling in. its not a rap concert in the middle of the city, or a bunch of drunk dave mathews band kids at the meadows in hartford. its people, many tripping or altered, and trying to have fun. and everyone has drugs on em. they wouldn't riot. they would run.


the festival scene is dying anyway. has been for years. its kinda a joke now among some circles of people.

the music is still good, but festivals largely attract drug users more than music lovers ever year, sadly. thats the reason i see it as dying.

a guy on every corner of shakedown at roo has a backpack, filled with coke, or mushies, or pot. there are hundreds of these people. and its only a matter of time, me thinks.

and another thing, promoters and property owners of the grounds would go down under the rave act. wouldn't they? its probably definite that they will start to come down on these things.

they are free for alls, and potentially dangerous places. not saying that they're for the scum of the earth, but i've met plenty of scum along with some cool people at these things. alot of these things just aren't great places anymore.

Naw. From what I've read in the local papers (and I'm just down the road from Manchester) they LOVE those tourist dollars! Believe me, 'Roo ain't going nowhere for a long time...

its not going anywhere, but LEO presence is more than likely if a couple people die again.

i heard the cops did some sweeps at bonnaroo, mostly confiscating nitrous tanks (easy targets- with the whistle they make) and busting coke dealers.

well I meant 2 or 3 years of nearly free drug trade within the premises

I could easily see them infiltrating roo with a lot more undercover cops as the years progress

People would definately riot at Bonnaroo. Last year every time I saw someone get busted, which was like 3 times, everyone around would boo and yell shit at the officers. Now imagine if the cops came wanting to arrest hundreds of people at a gathering of around 90000 people who generally don't like the cops. 90000 people arent going to collectively run and make it far. And how many people do you think could fit in all of the county and city jails in, say, a fifty mile radius of Bonnaroo. I'd guess not too many, considering they will alread have occupants.
Plus, why would police want to arrest people that bring a ton of money into an area at a regular interval? If they didnt want drug users in town they could just not grant the proper permits

Well, yes, no doubt LEO will be around, albeit vastly outnumbered. After all, as you said, they did have two deaths last year. But it's not a such a problem that a little applied discretion and caution won't fix....

i don't think that someone who never post should be allowed to go that to me is strange also! Those people should be looked at with great suspicion and gone around with great caution. WHy would you want to come if you never post what would be the point there would be no one for you the hang with..... That's really weird!

i doubt any riot would occur. it just doesn't work like that. coming from a 40 year old member of the family "these places are basically a forum to exchange drugs. its always been part of the vibe, but its taking over"

he surmised an end to larger gatherings, citing the rave act, and smaller, more intimate gatherings of family.

personally, i went to roo expecting a big, heart filled good time. instead, it was nothing but drugs and drunks. the place didn't have a good vibe at all. it was a joke to me, a fun one at that though.
