Showing that there is no explanation for what some people are thinking, legendary techno dj Jeff Mills was hit in the head this past weekend in Olías del Rey, Toledo, Spain during his set around 4:30 in the morning. When the power to the building unexpectedly cut out, a disgruntled ‘fan’ lobbed a bottle which hit Mills. As you would expect he immediately walked off the stage. Here is the clubs statement on this:
Official Communiqué · Area 42
When we announce our start of season, we never dreamt to be writing, just a few hours later, a statement like this…
But we want to start by thanking everyone who danced with us yesterday and you enjoy a great night, a special night in which a large audience and the music were being the protagonists, as it should happen at any party.
Thank you to all the less of a person, the one that did not know how to enjoy, don’t even respect something so humble and free as the music. That person who decided to throw a bottle on our main artist, Jeff Mills, disrespecting both his figure and endangering their physical integrity, as well as to all present, allowing us to be able to complete his incredible set.
Around 4:30, when all we enjoyed what was being the beginning of season dreamed, came up with this unfortunate moment that you are saying, so that our guest, as it is clear, he decided to put an end to his performance and leave the stage .
We can’t understand how someone can attend a place where the sole purpose is to enjoy and make this type of action, that’s why we want to make a call to all those who understand the music of another way, almost as a way of life and day to day We live and work for it, so that together we continue betting and supporting the scene as he deserves. From the promoters, passing by the artists until we get to the public, just like that, we will be able to continue enjoying the great moments that music is capable of letting us.
Many hours of work, illusion and especially win are the ingredients that have formed part from the beginning in our new project and will remain so, because a single person can ruin a moment, but do we stop dreaming and continue dancing together.
