San Bernardino County Supervisors Reject Proposal to End Raves at San Manuel Amphitheater
San Bernardino County supervisors rejected a proposal Tuesday to end two of Southern California’s largest raves at the San Manuel Amphitheater in Devore.
The board voted 2 to 1 to end the multi-day Nocturnal Wonderland and Beyond Wonderland electronic music festivals following protests from residents who have been pushing to end the concerts over safety, noise and traffic concerns, but the measure failed to get the three votes it needed for approval.
The county will, however, explore the possibility of ending the concerts three hours earlier.
Two people have died of overdoses since the festivals began at the county-owned outdoor venue in 2013. In March, during Beyond Wonderland, more than 200 people were arrested and 18 were taken to local hospitals, according to county records. The concert drew 63,000 people.
