Kaskade issues statement on Hollywood 'Electric Daisy' near-riot

July 28, 2011 | 11:35 am

DJ Kaskade has released a statement following Wednesday night's near-riot in Hollywood. The DJ, attempting to draw attention to the premiere of the documentary "Electric Daisy Carnival Experience," tweeted to his followers to join him for an impromptu street party in Hollywood.

Kaskade, who is scheduled to return to Europe on Thursday, released a statement Thursday morning regarding the events of the previous night.

"I'm incredibly disappointed that last night ended the way it did. It's unfortunate that a few disrespectful people turned what was supposed to be a celebration of music into a regrettable event. This is not what EDM is about." Pop & Hiss has left messages with Kaskade, and we'll keep you posted if we hear back.
