After complaints about drug use and noise, a Los Angeles-based rave company is moving one of its annual concerts from its longtime home in San Bernardino to Devore, but some neighbors of the new venue are angry about the change.

Insomniac Inc. decided to shift the Beyond Wonderland rave from the National Orange Show Events Center near downtown San Bernardino to the San Bernardino County-owned San Manuel Amphitheater after tensions with Police Chief Robert Handy and residents. It stages at least two other raves a year at the events center.

    The front question said "do you want a rave in your community?" and here it says "would you oppose a rave in your community?". The heck, dude?

    Yes i would oppose it. I live in a town notorious for its underaged drinking, and around halloween there was a big party/rave. I know that when events like this happen, self-entitled teenagers crash it, get drunk, get high, and get sent to the hospital. it's a burden on almost everybody.

    So dont go to the event. I dont want a lot of things around me but I dont try to ban other people from enjoying it. I would prefer that pop stars dont have concerts in my city, but I dont try to stop them.

    Well if you are concerned with it you shouldnt live next to an event center. Raves are not held public parks or in the streets of neighborhoods. They are at event centers that hold concerts and other events, or industrial complexes.

    The question posed was if I wanted raves in my neighborhood. I don't live by those things you mentioned. Let's not make a mountain out of a molehill.

    I support it, but the event center wasn't here when I moved in and we had no say in it. It's not like we can just pack up and move.

    Would be nice to have one in Burque. If it had the old-school sounds of a decade I wish I was part of then yes. Otherwise if it is Dubstep, or any other style that sucks for attention then no.

    Not all raves are massives where 30,000+ people are in attendance, like the one described in this article. Most are smaller. Used to go to raves all the time. Personally I always thought the smaller parties were better. Been to many many raves in San Bernindido, and a few massives at the Orange Show too (around 99' - 01'). Even though It's been a while since I've been to a party, it's who I am, I love the music. I would love for a party to be held near where I live...

    My community isn't large enough for a rave anyway. No one would enjoy the party, so dealers would market methamphetamine and ecstasy to enhance the atmosphere, thus leading to immense problems.

    It doesnt matter how large the community is, there will always be ecstacy and other drugs being sold. I dont know why that concerns you. It is the individuals personal choice. Do we not have the freedom to consume what we choose? I know freedom is not the law, but isnt it supposed to be? I have been to raves and really have never seen any serious problem take place... nothing more than any other concert or event.

    All the raves I've been to have either been broken up by the police or ended with people getting shot or raped..and never even really had any good music to speak of....horrible waste of time. I'd rather be home doing my homework and planning my future as a productive citizen in society, using my spare time towards helping others....just sayin'....

    maybe you can come to Devore and help some of these poor concert goers that will be stoned out of their mind and wondering around like zombies on our streets at 4 am in the morning. Let me know!

    I'm not stopping anyone from consuming ecstasy in my town limits. I simply wouldn't condone the activity or encourage it through accepting a venue in the neighborhood which would inevitably lead to drug use.

    plan a vacation and spend it here in our little community with us, we're having 4 a year and it's only a mile from my house, we can get stoned, play a little ukulele and sing some fun songs after the concert while sipping a little wine.

    Didn't the intro to this question ask the opposite question, like "Do you want a rave in your community?" Stop messing with us sodahead.
