RANDALL'S ISLAND, the Bronx (PIX11)-- After two fatal drug overdoses last year, the organizers of the Electric Zoo musical festival have made changes to the event starting Friday.

Ticket holders will now have to watch a two-minute 'Scared Straight' style video about ecstasy. The Randall's Island event will have tighter security and roving drug-sniffing dogs.

There's also robotic cameras located all around the festival, monitoring any drug use.
