LOS ANGELES (AP) - In the wake of two suspected overdose deaths at rave concerts the Los Angeles County Fair Association says there will be no raves at the fairgrounds this year.

The Los Angeles Times reports (http://lat.ms/1TRNHC3 ) that association spokeswoman Renee Hernandez said there are no planned electric dance music concerts or related events planned for 2016.

The announcement comes after say 18-year-old Tracy Nguyen and 19-year-old Katie Dix died of apparent drug overdoses after attending Live Nation Entertainment’s Hard Summer at Fairplex Park in Pomona on Aug. 1. Los Angeles authorities have confirmed Nguyen died from the party drug Ecstasy

Raves stopped being held at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and Sports Arena in 2011 after a 15-year-old girl who attended a rave died of an Ecstasy overdose.
