Lovevolution hangs in the balance

Promoters of the annual Lovevolution event met with city officials Wednesday to work on the logistics of holding the event at Candlestick Parking lot. As first reported by The San Francisco Examiner, The City took the Civic Center location — where the event has been held for the past six years — off the table over safety concerns.

Promoters are now working with The City to secure an alternative site, the Candlestick parking lot. It remains unclear if The City will approve of this site. Promoters are expected to provide city officials with more information by Friday on EMS, transportation and other security plans for the proposed Candlestick event.

Lovevolution is set scheduled for Oct. 2.
