Dubfire has revealed he was eyewitness to the horrifying terrorist attack in Barcelona yesterday, which claimed the lives of 13 and wounded about 100 more.


Soon after the attack, Dubfire jumped on social media to share just how close he was to the devastation…

He didn’t just remain “in shock” though — he soon followed up, revealing plans to take action. The tech house producer made the difficult decision to carry on with his show scheduled in Barcelona, rather than give into fear.

Dubfire shared:

“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.”

While the music industry and beyond has expressed deepest sympathy for those affected by the senseless attack of violence, Dubfire’s personal account is a particularly moving one.

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.
