Jackmaster has admitted to "abusive" and "inappropriate" behaviour at Love Saves the Day festival in May.
Earlier this week, Jackmaster – real name Jack Revill – apologised for unspecified “inappropriate and offensive” behaviour at the event in Bristol in May.
Due to the misrepresentation of the facts following that apology, Revill has sought to clarify the situation.
“The situation is no laughing matter,” he said in his new statement. “I was abusive and acted lewdly and inappropriately towards numerous members of staff at the festival—both female and male.”

A raft of UK DJs turned out to oppose Donald Trump’s visit on Friday 13th July. A Revolution Day event saw a free party take to the streets organised by Gideön, which began at Soho Radio HQ early in the afternoon.
By the time the DJ Mag crew turned up, we’d already missed Seth Troxler’s set but Midland and Breach were going b2b in front of the Great Windmill Street crowd — a gorgeous mix of LGBTQs, industry folk and free party people — with some feelgood classics.
The jewel in the crown of Movement Torino’s Kappa Futur Festival is its evocative industrial location, the Parco Dora. The former home of a steel and sheet metal workshop — which was abandoned in the 1980s — it now makes for an incredible and sprawling techno playground. This weekend’s offering (Friday 6th July to Sunday 8th July) is the biggest Kappa Futur to date, with over 5000 Brits alone making the pilgrimage to Turin for two days of house and techno from some of the best in the business.

The mighty Rinse FM has announced a vast new wave of residents station’s summer season featuring the likes of Jackmaster, Laurel Halo, Barely Legal and many more.
Since launching in 1994 Rinse FM has been one of, if not the most vital radio station in promoting underground music in the UK given its early and ongoing championing of grime, dubstep, bass, garage and other UK-born styles of electronic music.
Kvarteret, Sweden’s new 2,200 capacity club has now opened, with Gerd Janson, Jackmaster and Avalon Emerson locked in for its debut season.

Why are you organising the marathon Trump protest party at Soho Radio?
“If you don’t like the way the world is then change it. Thats what my mother taught me. Do it yourself. As a kid some of my most important memories are related to protest. Thatcher and the miners’ strikes, Campaign For Nuclear Disarmament at Greenham Common, Free Nelson Mandela and the Anti-Apartheid struggle.
“My first real major DJ gig was playing on a bicycle powered sound system in Trafalgar Square at the anti Criminal Justice Bill demonstration. I played to the whole of Trafalgar Square, apparently around 50,000 people. Literally the first record played was mine. I was 16. You don’t forget stuff like that. It’s in my blood, and I think that unless we all pull our fingers out and stop staring into our smartphones then the likes of Trump, May, Putin, Erdogan and Netinyahu will get a stranglehold on humanity forever. Fuck that. Let’s come together and resist!
Why do you think things like this are important nowadays?
"The essence of art is based in resistance. We’re at a turning point in history where fascism is on the rise, and only through global awareness can we fight the tide of the rising right. Silence is collaboration, it's in our works and collaborative effort that we scream, ‘Never!’.
Why play this kind of event for free?
‘I think I owe it to our culture. I owe it to people of colour, I owe it to women, I owe it to the people most marginalised by the UK & US governments. I feel music has always been my best medium of communication. What we need is a positive message of resistance right now and I feel like it’s this generation of club kids can help us deliver!”
Why play this kind of event for free?
“I don't really see this as offering my services for free, it's a chance to make a noise for something we believe in and oppose. It's important to try and change minds and what better way to do it than using music.”
Why are you offering your DJ services for free for this event?
“I’m doing this because I believe in equality, inclusion and a better, more caring and peaceful world. With the current regime globally, I feel that the world is becoming divisive, more exclusive and unequal in favour of the people in positions of power in all walks of life. It’s time for that to fucking change.
