So out of the approx. 25,000 people who attended not even 1% of them were rushed to the hospital, and 1 died. It is tragic of his death and he won't be forgotten much love and support go out to his family.
But as everyone has said for the degree of weather, fire marshals, paramedics, police officers, and amount of people there this event was not an epic failure nor shall it 'mare' the event.
Fair Park is a dying stadium with Jerry Jones' Cowboys Stadium many events are now moved to Arlington. So tickets ranging from 50 to 80 for just general admission and having 23,000 people there... that is not such a bad turn out for the city of Dallas or Insomniac.
Lets face it, people are not that smart when it comes to consuming things such as drugs, alcohol, etc. SO OF COURSE PEOPLE WOULD BE RUSHED TO THE HOSPITAL!!!! EDC WAS A RAVE everyone knows what happens at Raves and if they don't well now they do. Insomniac cannot control what happens at EDC they only host the event at the city and the rest is really up to security, fire marshals, police, etc.
THEY HAD FREE WATER REFILL STATIONS... all you had to do is purchase a water bottle once and keep refilling it folks it was really not that hard to keep hydrated, wether somebody chose to was there responsibility.
As far as the fire marshals pulling the alarm that was uncalled for, they could of simply put Skrillex on the outdoor stage just as they did Flux, but who's fault is that they put the headliner in an indoor stage...ticketing Insomniac is nonsense, if fire marshals were that anal about how many people were in an indoor stage they shouldn't of let those people in there in the first place!!! And if the max occupancy is 46,000 why in the hell would they freak out if only 23,000 people half of the max occupancy is even at Fair Park.
Anyway overall Electric Daisy Carnival Dallas has been the best Insomniac event I have ever been to the last two years, it would really be a shame to see it not come back to Dallas let alone Fair Park the next year for it brings out over 20,000 people and lets them all experience the vibe of the Best Electronic Festival; "uniting under the Electric Daisy."
