The Fresh Squeezed Music Festival 2010 was meant to be a "gathering of epic proportions never before seen in Southern California," according to their site, but it seems that the show won't go on tonight after all.

First planned to be held in Pico Rivera, the city pulled the event contract when the recent Electric Daisy Carnival's aftermath raised the red flag about rave-style events, says abc7, particularly the attendance of minors, the presence of drugs, and concerns about public safety. Once booted from Pico Rivera, Fresh Squeezed found a spot in the City of Industry, but the plug was pulled there, too, when officials found that the proper permits had not been secured by the promoter.

And so Fresh Squeezed will not happen. Well, not exactly.
