The Electronic Music Community Reacts to the Alt-Right Protests in Charlottesville

If you're finding the news coming out of Charlottesville, VA — where an alt-right rally led to violence, hate speech and a domestic terrorist attack on counter protestors — has left you outraged, you're not alone.

Countless of members of the electronic music industry have taken to social media to fight back against the situation unfolding in Virginia, where Gov. Terry McAuliffe has declared a state of emergency. This is a time where all persons of influence in the EDM world must ban together, showing resistance to this new found enemy of the freedom that we hold so dearly in our diverse community. United, our message is strong.

Call out evil by its name, stand up to those that seethe with hate by preaching the gospel of peace, love, unity, and respect. Our values are at stake.
