"Police prepare for possible problems with drug use at Shoreline event". This has got to be THE most stupid headline the Mountain View Voice has EVER come up with. And your article? Is the writer freak'n new?? It doesn't matter WHAT the genre is; it's Shoreline, it's a concert. There's going to be drugs and alcohol. I can guarantee you, 90% of those 'partaking' will attend the event "with no fear of arrest".
"No backpacks will be allowed inside". Who cares? That's not where we are stashing our pot anyway. Those of us who regularly attend events at Shoreline have come to realize that bringing a backpack is pointless anyway, since the only thing we need a backpack for is to carry legal H20, of which Shoreline shamelessly removes the caps, rendering our supply of water useless, leaving us no option but to dump what we brought and force us to shell out $4 to stay hydrated. And trust me, when you have people attending an event using drugs and alcohol, you want them to stay hydrated.
Oh, wait!!! I get it! Who's really the criminal here anyway? Geesh!!

I agree that this festival is going to just be a huge rave with lots of underage kids doing ecstacy and other drugs like LSD!!! I know because my friend use to tell me all the time what its like at these stupid venues. Lets not forgot what happened at the Cow Palace these past years with overdoses of kids drugged up on ecstacy. Never again should City of Mountain View approve a stupid venue like this. This RAVE is a ticking timebomb!!

I really love Electronic Music and I think there's a lot more to it than a bunch of kids raving on drugs. It can trace it's roots all the way back to the early Electronic Music of the 70s like Tangerine Dream and Kraftwerk merged with the Dance music of the same period. I particularly like some of the music by "The Crystal Method" and "Kaskade" both of whom will be performing this weekend. I think I might be too old to attend the event tho. :)
