Resident Advisor’s open letter calls for dance music community to support scene

Resident Advisor

The publication is urging those involved with the electronic scene to help each other.

Resident AdvisorĀ has launched an open letter calling for the dance music community to help save the scene. The platform has advised people to refuse refunds for cancelled events, and to show support by buying music and merchandise. Furthermore, it suggests that people make donations to venues and its workers.

The open letter contains signatures from DJs, promoters, agents, publicists, managers and more. Artists who’ve signed the letter include Daniel Avery, CCL, Fauzia, Batu, Vladimir Ivkovic and Jacques Greene. You can sign it here.

Recently, Boris Johnson urged the UK population to avoid clubs, pubs and theatres. In a press conference this week, he said the government will no longer support mass gatherings. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, festivals, events and tours have been cancelled or postponed. Glastonbury announced on Wednesday (18 March) that its 2020 edition will no longer go ahead.
