What’s up with Monster Massive?
Monster Massive, the one-night-only Halloween dance festival, is set to take place on October 29th. The “House of Horror” stage will house Erick Morillo and Moby, with other acts to be announced, while the “Tomb of Doom” main stage features Armin Van Buuren‘s eight-hour “Armin Only Mirage” show. The show will no doubt be incredible. The only question is, where’s it being held?
The event has been advertised to take place at the Oak Canyon Park and Irvine Lake in Silverado, California. However, James Events, the park’s event organizers, wrote in an October 5th Facebook post that Monster Massive isn’t taking place at Oak Canyon. The next day, they sent out an even more detailed message…
OFFICIAL STATEMENT TO THOSE OF YOU SEEKING CORRECT INFORMATION SURROUNDING THE MONSTER MASSIVE EVENT:
Clarification to all of you trying to get the correct information. James Event staff CORRECTLY informed all concerned callers when we told you that the event IS NOT TAKING PLACE AT OAK CANYON IN ORANGE. We regret that Go Ventures is misleading their patrons, but unfortunately we are not affiliated with this event. We requested that Go Ventures remove Oak Canyon and all associated James Event Productions information from their website by Monday. We updated our website today because they had not yet met our request. We attempted to contact their offices today and received no call back.
We had been blocked from Monster Massive’s facebook page this afternoon. Their update on facebook today at 5:42pm was posted after our office closed for the business day. We wish Go Ventures the best with the event, wherever it is going to be held, and hope all participants have a safe and enjoyable time.
MONSTER MASSIVE IS NOT TAKING PLACE AT THE OAK CANYON FACILITY IN ORANGE and all guests will be turned away at the gate.

Monster Massive issued a response Friday on its official Facebook page, countering the information put out by James Events:
Please do not believe the false rumors and lies being spread. Monster Massive 2011 is not cancelled and is scheduled to Take Place at OAK CANYON PARK and LAKE IRVINE. Please refer to the official event website www.MonsterMassive.com for updates and all event information. We apologize for any confusion and will post official notices from both the Venue and the City within 24hrs. Thanks For your support. GO Ventures, ARMIN ONLY, and the many Producers, people, staff and production that support MONSTER MASSIVE.
Neither James Events nor Monster Massive have commented on the back-and-forth since. The Monster Massive website still says the show is going down in Oak Canyon Park. We’ll update you as soon as we know more.
