    Insomniac settles civil lawsuit with LA Memorial Coliseum Commission for $3.5-million


    OzClubbers

    After a six-year legal battle, the Insomniac brand and its CEO, Pasquale Rotella, have finally settled their civil lawsuit with the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum Commission, with the settlement price tag weighing in at a cool $3.5-million.

    The case was opened in 2011 after the government formally accused two Coliseum managers of engaging in “corrupt” behavior. The lawsuit cited Insomniac and Go Ventures as being involved in “unlawful and/or unfair business practices” — allegedly underpaying the venue while hosting events at the Coliseum. The corruption suit would be responsible for Electronic Daisy Carnival’s relocation from Los Angeles to Las Vegas.

    “I’m so pleased to finally be putting this matter behind me,” Rotella stated, “It’s been a long journey to get where we are, and I’m excited about what’s next for me in my hometown of Los Angeles.”

    Rotella submitted a no contest plea to the misdemeanor conflict-of-interest charge brought against him. Rotella will pay $150,000 to Los Angeles County, serving three-years of probation.

      We see him more and more often appear in the harder styles and it wouldn’t be his last one for sure. Hardwell, the former number one DJ of the world, makes an appearance again in hardstyle music and this time he does it with no one less than Wildstylez for a collaboration.
      After they shared the stage during Amsterdam Dance Event together and worked in the studio with each other in that same month, the collab between the two of them was only a matter of time. And now it’s here: last weekend Hardwell played at The World’s Biggest Guestlist Festival in India, which he organized himself for his United We Are Foundation.
      After Hardwell took the chance to mention his friend over the microphone (“Shout out to my buddy Wildstylez!”) during his set, he dropped his new collab with the hardstyle DJ. And so their track got premiered for the visitors and viewers and home via the livestream. Check out the video down below.
      This is the new Hardwell & Wildstylez collab
      As the new collab by Hardwell & Wildstylez is still it’s early stages, it’s not know yet what the title of the track is going to be. When and where the track is going to be released is going to be revealed later on. In a earlier interview we did with Hardwell, he mentioned that there’s a tiny chance that he will play a hardstyle set in the future: “There are no plans at the moment, but never say never.”
