Radio 104.5 had its summer block party on a weekend at an open air plaza called The Piazza at Schmidt’s in Philadelphia, USA. The importance of security and some extra planning ahead of throwing a huge party came out in the open when an outdoor concert turned into a nightmare for the neighbours.
The concert ended with hundreds of kids, including girls, peeing out in the open and having sex outside a residential neighbourhood. The wild party had the locals furious and they reported it to the NBC, Philadelphia.
The situation got out of hand. The kids were stumbling around drunk everywhere, they were having sex outside, peeing and puking everywhere!
One resident recorded two teenagers having sex in a walkway. When they were asked to take their business elsewhere, they reportedly ignored and resumed having sex for about 40 more minutes.
The town is trying to get the radio station to pay for and clean up the damage.
The Clear Channel responded with a statement that said, “We apologise for any of our fans who may have had a less than enjoyable experience at this past weekend’s block party. As these shows have become larger and more popular, we’ve worked with our partners at the Piazza to have them increase security and facilities.”
The Kushner Companies, Owner of the Piazza responded, “Unfortunately, the organisers didn’t follow the requirements and standards for public events within the leased space and we are taking appropriate action”
They didn’t elaborate on what would the impending action be, but Clear Channel has changed the venue for the party for the next month.
