LOS ANGELES (AP) — Organizers of a Los Angeles rave that ended with the death of a 15-year-old girl are suing the city for canceling a concert it organized with electronic music artist Tiesto.

Insomniac Inc. filed the breach-of-contract lawsuit Friday against the city for canceling an October concert at the Convention Center.

The lawsuit seeks a court order allowing the concert to go on. The city attorney’s office did not immediately comment on the lawsuit Monday.

Insomniac organized the Electric Daisy Carnival in June. The two-day stadium event was marred by the girl’s death from a suspected drug overdose and 118 arrests, mostly for drug possession.

But Insomniac says the Tiesto concert would be indoors and limited to adults.
