UMass Amherst has cancelled upcoming EDM concerts on campus due to the recent “Molly” and MDMA related deaths at concerts in the Northeast (House of Blues Boston and EZoo). It is disappointing, to say the least, as the concerts were to feature Pretty Lights and Above & Beyond, two super groups that are absolutely amazing live. The shows were scheduled to take place on Oct 4 and Oct 30, respectively. The school claims that “the evidence is clear that Molly use is closely linked to EDM concerts” and therefore they have preemptively cancelled them all. Refunds will be given to all the students, but EDM will be on hold at UMass until further notice.
