Starscape and all of those "music festivals" are nothing but an excuse for tons of weirdo's to get together where they can openly sell and use drugs. Then they party all night only to leave at 6am and swerve all the way home to MA NY PA GA. A simple youtube search will tell you the same thing. People die at raves and festivals all the time, last year a young girl was killed at one in WV. People go to festivals for to party and openly use drugs, not for the music. I am disgusted that the state allows them to use Fort Armistead for their get-together. You can believe me or not, but I have been there and I know. My only hope is that people keep an eye on their teenagers and young adults. You would be SHOCKED if you knew what your little angels were up to out here!

You need to calm dowm and rationalize your thoughts before you put them out there. Yes raves and festivals are a breeding ground for illicit drug use and activities, but that in no way gives you the right to group every single person into the same category to look down upon. So if you are telling me I go to the Phish show in Pittsburgh in July I am solely going to get high and party? Not listen to the songs I have with my family and friends since I was 6 years old? I am a recovering addict and I still go to shows all the time. Its a disgrace for someone to be so ignorant on a subject as beautiful and creative as music
