Jeff Mills canceled his headlining set after being hit by a bottle at Spain’s Club Area 42 opening event. The incident occurred at approximately 4:30am of Sunday morning during a power outage that hit the club.
Amid the outage, lights, sound system, and visuals were off when someone from the crowd threw a bottle towards the DJ booth and caused Mills to immediately cancel his performance. Brazilian DJ Fernanda Martins stepped in after the power was restored and the party resumed.
“We can’t understand how someone can visit a place where the only aim is to enjoy yourself and commit an act like this,” said the club via Facebook.
Mills has not released a statement regarding the occurrence.
This isn’t the first time an artist is disrespected on stage; Duke Dumont ended his performance early after being spat on and thrown drinks at in Edmonton earlier this fall.
