CA Regulators Say Coliseum Allowed Underage Drinking At Rave

LOS ANGELES (AP) — California regulators say the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum violated its license to sell alcohol by allowing teenage drinking during the Electric Daisy Carnival rave last year.

The state Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control says the Coliseum also allowed consumption and sales of alcohol in the parking lot, which is outside the conditional use license area.

The Los Angeles Times says penalties range from a warning or fine to suspension or revocation of a license. A nonprofit arm of the Coliseum Commission — the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum Association — handles concessions for the Coliseum.

An overdose death of a teenager at the electronic music festival led to a brief moratorium on Coliseum raves. Electric Daisy Carnival organizers said earlier the event is moving to Las Vegas.
