This article goes into detail on how drugs can be a huge problem in music festivals.  It also talks about the drug Molly and how its destroying the music festival industry. 

Steve Nova's curator insight, April 13, 2014 9:42 PM

One of the biggest cons to music festivals is the fact that drugs do happen and many teens do attend these festivals and tend to go a bit wild at times, However drugs are used around the world so the use of drugs being used at these festivals is completely based up on opinion.

Tevin Reiff's curator insight, November 4, 2014 8:05 PM

Drug use at music festivals is inevitable. The most we can do is create help for serious situations. Plan for a safer future of music festivals.

Derek Rammel's curator insight, April 13, 2014 10:51 AM

As awesome as music festivals can be, they are quite expensive. I understand that some people might not want to pay that much, and not go, but it is hurting the business side.  With so many festivals out there, the competition might get tough, and this is causing some festivals to cancel their shows.
