    Default Woman Dies from Apparent Drug Overdose After Attending Weekend 1

    http://pitchfork.com/news/54842-coac...g-at-festival/

    My condolences go out to her friends and family. Stuff like this just didn't use to happen, and I really hope this doesn't happen again.

    EDIT: Sorry, wrong thread, meant to put this in Misc. Babble. Mod please move.

    I am not sure how this shows Coachella has "changed". People have been dying at festivals, concerts and virtually every other type of social gathering for years.
    10/8 - Little Dragon @ Marquee (Tempe, AZ)
    10/11 - Carolina Chocolate Drops @ Rialto Theater (Tucson, AZ)
    11/10 - The Black Keys @ US Airways Center (Phoenix, AZ)
    4/10/15 - 4/12/15 - Coachella

    Someone dies and you post "Coachella has changed for the worse".

    Disgusting.

    I completely agree, i'm not denying that. But I have a feeling it's going to be a combination of ecstasy and maybe other drugs, which was not nearly as common a few years ago at Coachella, simply because it was a different demographic.

    I'm not trying to belittle her life or death, I feel awful about what happened, and I wish the best for her and her family.

    This is no way is indicative of Coachella "changing" in any way, unless your hypothesis is that drug use is a new development.

    I think it's an indication of a changing demographic, but i'm basing this completely off of a guess that she ODed on Ecstasy or similar drugs.

    I see how my initial comment could be construed as insensitive, so I would like to apologize for it, that was never my intention. Let's keep discussion about the article and situation.

    I remember back when saying Coachella had changed for the worse was cool. Now it's so mainstream.

    Ecstacy hardly hurts anyone , alcohol and opiates mixed are the worst. I had neighbors up all night doing coke and drinking vodka.

    If by changed for the worse, you mean the influx of Oakland residents, I couldn't agree with you more.

    I am honestly completely shocked that a lot more people don't die at Coachella every year. Good job, indomitable spirit of man.

    Also, the idea that people only recently have been using lots of drugs at Coachella is fucking asinine. Most of the regular posters on this message have been ingesting massive amounts of drugs and alcohol at this for its entirety.

    I wonder what day this happened on. I thought i noticed an increase in security checks on Sunday. Could be a correlation? Or i was in a shitty line.

    Right. What we are saying is that your hypothesis - that the use of ecstasy and "similar drugs" is a new phenomenon - is absurd.

    You could probably make an argument for an increased amount of "rookie" drug users. But good luck supporting it with factual data.

    And the narrative that these festival related drug overdoses are a result of ecstasy/molly alone and that that demonstrates the horrors of EDM is detrimental. These are usually always combinations of substances with an element of dehydration.
