So far, promoters of the event are refusing to let Stay Safe Seattle inside. The local non-profit goes into clubs and parties, trying to make drug use more safe.
Dax Johnson told KING 5 that the drug educators, "Don't tell you exactly (what) not to do, but they give you the knowledge."
Stay Safe has started a petition drive and, to date, they've collected 200 signatures.
They hope to convince USC events, the promoters that run the Paradiso Festival, to welcome them to the event next year.
