Following a series of illegal raves in the UK, Carl Cox has given his perspective on the transpiring events. As parties across the country have been shut down, some have led to dangerous consequences, including two Manchester raves that resulted in one fatality, three stabbings, and a sexual assault. The famed DJ has attributed the illegal raves to the lack of a timeline on clubs and festivals reopening.
“These illegal parties are basically done out of frustration. Just done out of showing it’s our right to do what we want to do. It’s not the answer to this,” stated Cox.
Cox further said social distancing has prevented nightlife from returning to normal which “for the music scene—absolutely sucks.” While a portion of pubs and bars will reopen on July 4, details surrounding the larger nightlife scene still remain uncertain. However, leaked government documents do reveal the nightlife sector could potentially reopen with “entry checks” and other strict guidelines.
