Cancel Plague Rave DJs

I predict that there will not be the slightest bit of back lash for these djs.

Are people expecting them to them to be blacklisted and not get gigs after the pandemic? Because that's not happening.

ok, second attempt - I wrote this post a few days ago, but it got lost in the latest forum update.

while I understand why people might wanna call out DJs that play gigs right now, I think everyone else involved at those parties (promoters AND crowd) are just as 'guilty'. I understand it's the DJs that might entice people to go to events, but my personal view is it doesn't matter which side of the DJ booth you stand on, right now is sadly just not the time to mingle. so no matter if you are an artist, a promoter or an attendee, you are just as responsible. it starts with the promoter who decides to do a party, it continues with the DJs who agree to play and ends with the people who attend.

as said above, I don't think anything will happen to the careers of those DJs that do play gigs currently. djokovic organized a big tennis tournament last summer, he still has his job. there were lots of big church services which resulted in superspreading events, I don't think any priest has lost his job over that neither.

It's a tricky one as whilst it's legal for these parties to be held, DJs / promoters / punters will say they're safe.

The lack of social distancing (especially for indoor events) is a real worry though. Compare that to in Ibiza last summer where you couldn't dance, had to wear a mask when not at your table, and there was decent social distancing.

the people I know in music (djs, promoters, punters alike) have all abided by the rules over the last year. the irony is that ordinarily in just about every other department these are professional outlaws and renegades who've never obeyed the system in their lives... yes we're all getting on so maybe it's less of a challenge anyway... might be a different story if we were all still 18....

an element of common sense is needed. just because country X seems ok, doesn't mean it actually is. bide your time kids... end of tunnel in sight

boycotting DJs? can't see it happening tbh, my inner cynic suspects most people don't really give a shit. happily for me at least, most of the names on the blacklist are people I would have swerved anyway...

Re Bicep tickets: They started at £10 for the first 1,000 and £14 standard afaik. Seem to be £14 now. Good luck to them - Level headed, creative, compassion for the global situation and their fans... You'd think those would be pretty standard, base level qualities to live by in the industry when this pandemic struck. They’re currently in a very tight race for the number one album in the UK by tonight.

“Before it was fine to video tape every minute of your set for PR reasons. Now, new policy in Tulum/Mykonos etc.: “Don’t film me while I’m playing... no one should know that I don’t care about anything and anyone but myself & money”.

Makes sense that Solardo have been quiet on social media. I wonder if they flew into Mexico or something for 2 weeks to get into the US to get around the restrictions?

We should all be in this together, however a number of high profile DJs think it is acceptable to travel to Tulum to DJ at events that have proven to be super spreader events (Read below)

It tells you all you need to know about the DJs playing these events, their egos are more important than the life’s of the local people.

if we let them get away with it and business continues as normal, we are part of the problem.

I will not support any of these DJs anymore be it buying music or attending their events and I encourage others to do the same. I seriously hope all promoters also cancel these DJs. Shame on them.

wAFF & Richie Ahmed were part of the first international group to land in Thailand and trial their new quarantine system.

Private jet to Phuket, 'police escort' to a luxury villa where they are stuck for 10 days with daily covid checks etc... but no doubt have some gigs lined up after
