Hollywoodnews.com: Police dressed in full riot gear turned out for the premiere of Insomniac’s “Electric Daisy Carnival Experience” at Grauman’s Chinese theater on Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles Wednesday night when fans packed the streets in hopes of catching a glimpse of uber-popular DJ Kaskade, who tweeted prior to the premiere that he’d be performing a free set.

Such is the power of Twitter.

“The near-riot pitted Lapd officers, who were trying to clear Hollywood Blvd., against fans trying to catch a glimpse of Kaskade, despite audible warnings via megaphone from Insomniac staff and Grauman’s Chinese employees stating over and over that Kaskade’s appearance was ‘canceled’ and that fans should vacate the premises,” THR writes. “In fact, the DJ himself sent several tweets pleading with fans to ‘chill’ and leave the area after he got wind of Lapd problems with crowds. »
