GRiZ responded to reports of overzealous security and police at his Triple Rainbow camping festival by offering to reimburse attendees who received citations. The two-day event was held at Alpine Valley in East Troy, Wisconsin on September 16 and 17.
“I’m beyond upset w the policing & Worked really hard on this event. To see our community treated so poorly was heartbreaking,” the EDM artist born Grant Richard Kwiecinski tweeted. “I always want what’s best for y’all, so if u got a citation there email email@example.com w a screenshot of the ticket & I’ll reimburse u.”
GRiZ’s tweet included a screenshot of a post on the venue’s Instagram page regarding the event. “We acknowledge that some campers had a less than optimal experience in our campground and we apologize,” read part of the note that followed a message thanking the GRiZ community and Triple Rainbow attendees. “We appreciate your valuable feedback as we are continuously working to improve our camping experience.” Those who experienced issues can contact venue/campground operators Live Nation at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A review of Triple Rainbow published by EDMIdentity.com detailed the author’s experience with the police at the venue and campgrounds. Steph Wanderling wrote:
The first thing I noticed was the security and police presence that felt overbearing at times.
While security getting into the site wasn’t too bad upon entry – they searched your car and put your wristbands on for you to make sure it was tightened – it was another story inside the campgrounds. There was a strict noise curfew being enforced, so from 2:30am to 8am, you weren’t allowed to blast your speakers as you normally would hear at other camping festivals. If you didn’t obey, a cop would come and tell you to turn it down and/or give you a ticket. Additionally, the venue had police dogs and authorities patrolling the grounds constantly, which left many attendees feeling as if they were being profiled and others raided for paraphernalia throughout the weekend.
GRiZ headlined both nights of Triple Rainbow. LSDREAM, Tape B, CloZee and Minnesota were among other acts who performed over the course of the weekend.
