Organizers for the Lost Lake Festival, coming to Steele Indian School Park later this month, shared the following statement with ABC15 regarding safety concerns:
Our hearts go out to those impacted by the tragedy in Las Vegas. At all of our events, and Lost Lake Festival taking place later this month, the safety of our patrons, staff, volunteers and artists is our highest priority. We will continue to work closely with Phoenix law enforcement officials to assess our safety and security protocols to ensure we host the safest event possible.
The music festival will be a three-day multi-stage music festival that reflects Phoenix's musicians, artists, games, chefs and mixologists.
Organizers spoke out after a deadly mass shooting Sunday night at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas.
A gunman on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel-casino rained heavy fire down on a crowd of over 22,000 at an outdoor country music festival, turning the expanse into a killing ground from which there was little escape. As of 5:30 p.m. Monday, 59 people had been confirmed dead and 527 injured.
