Dubfire has revealed he was an eye-witness to the tragic terror attack yesterday in Barcelona. The Iranian-American producer was riding his bike near Ramblas when he saw the intentional collision.
Despite still being in shock, Dubfire will continue with his planned performance tonight (18th August) at Barcelona’s The Light Off at Café Del Mar Boat Club. He has also pledged his performance fee to the victims and their families.
“We WILL NOT give into fear but will unite through music and the celebration of friendship,” Dubfire protests via social media “I will also be donating my entire fee to a charity that will care for the victims and relatives of this tragedy. I hope that it helps in some way.” Read the full statement below.

I was just riding my bike to the right of the Ramblas when a large white van came racing down the promenade plowing into everyone...in shock— Dubfire (@dubfire) August 17, 2017
Yesterday I was an eyewitness to the senseless terrorist attack on innocent victims along Las Ramblas in the beautiful city of Barcelona which I love very much. I am still in shock and trying to process what I saw. Sadly such attacks have become a “new normal” in our society. That being said, we cannot allow these cowardly acts of violence to disrupt our daily lives, stripping away our freedoms, because that is precisely what their goal is. Therefore, after careful consideration and discussion with my friends, colleagues and internal team, I have decided NOT to cancel my gig tonight at @thelightoffbarcelona in Barcelona. We WILL NOT give into fear but will unite through music and the celebration of friendship. I will also be donating my entire fee to a charity that will care for the victims and relatives of this tragedy. I hope that it helps in some way.
