Carl Cox has said that Illegal raves during pandemic are “not the answer”.
The techno DJ recently spoke in an interview with Sky News about the resurgance of illegal raves and parties in the UK, blaming it on the government and the lack of a clear timeline on clubs and festivals reopening.
Cox told Sky News social distancing means nightlife just cannot operate as normal. "These illegal parties are basically done out of frustration," he said. "Just done out of showing it's our right to do what we want to do. It's not the answer to this."
