JEFF MILLS BOTTLED AT SPAIN’S NEW CLUB AREA 42

The incident occurred at the venue in Olías Del Rey…

Jeff Mills was forced off stage mid-set after being struck by a bottle thrown from the crowd in the early hours of Sunday morning, at the launch of the new Club Area 42 in Spain.

The incident occurred during a power cut at the Olías Del Rey venue, with the perpetrator throwing the bottle whilst the club was in complete darkness. Mills left the stage after he was struck, but later returned to finish his set.

In a statement issued last night (16th October), the club confirmed the incident took place at 4:30am, before saying, “We can't understand how someone can attend a place where the sole purpose is to enjoy and make this type of action.”

You can read Club Area 42’s full statement below. Mills is yet to make an official statement on the matter.
