Scottish DJ/producer Jackmaster (a.k.a. Jack Revill) has issued an apology for being intoxicated at Love Saves The Day, a festival held in Bristol in May. According to his statement posted yesterday on Facebook, he “behaved inappropriately and offensively to staff at the event, and damaged equipment, whilst heavily intoxicated.”
Jackmaster added, “As much as this was out of character: substances are an individual’s choice, not an excuse. I have already made major changes to my lifestyle, and will continue these ongoing. Over the last few weeks I have done everything in my ability to confront and address the repercussions of my actions head-on, and apologise personally to those that I affected. This post will serve to remind me that my behaviour was unacceptable, and it is a bid to address issues in the wider events and music industries.
“I appreciate the professionalism of Love Saves the Day for taking a strong stance for their staff, whilst maintaining openness throughout.”
Love Saves The Day’s organizers issued a response shortly afterward:
We received complaints from our staff as to the behaviour of Jack at our Love Saves The Day Festival this summer. We took the complaints extremely seriously and fully investigated the incidents.
Jack met with us and representatives of the staff involved and showed genuine remorse, full responsibility for his actions plus an undertaking to ensure that his behaviour would never be repeated at any event in the future.
Our staff and family have accepted his apology and consider this matter closed, whilst reserving the right to further pursue complaints at such point in the future that we are ever aware of this behaviour being repeated.
Love Saves the Day takes the welfare if its staff and family extremely seriously and will never tolerate any unacceptable behaviour towards them, from any member the public, contractors, or artists.
