ATLANTA (AP) - Organizers of the electronic dance music festival TomorrowWorld are taking extra precautions to maintain a safe environment for concertgoers this weekend.

The concert follows two drug-related deaths occurred at a similar festival in New York this summer.

The three-day festival kicks off in Fairburn in surburban Atlanta on Friday.

The U.S. project director for ID&T, the Belgian company producing the event, says anyone caught with an illegal substance will be kicked out.

Earlier this month, the last day of the Electric Zoo festival in New York City was canceled after two attendees died and several were hospitalized. The city's medical examiner's office said the concert-goers overdosed from MDMA, known as Molly.
