If the event is at the high school I would assume that someone with responsibility would be there? I understand how you must be feeling because I have children of my own, but I suppose it depends on how responsible you feel your son and his friends are. If you can trust them to take care of each other then I would probably let them go. Perhaps you could arrange a time to pick them up so you have some control over the situation or something.

Yu are doing the right thing by not allowing him to go there but if your child wants to go there then you can accompany him there. You sound like a caring parent and it is very good. I his friends are allowed to go there alone then it doesn't mean that you should allow your son too.
