EDM’s Biggest DJs Sound Off On Social Media In Response To Multiple Mass Shootings

This past weekend, mass shootings in both Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas left at least 30 dead and more than 50 injured, prompting another national debate on gun control and violence. On a weekend when hundreds of thousands of people should have been celebrating at HARD Summer in Southern California or Lollapalooza in Chicago, the country was in a deep state of mourning, grief, and also anger.


EDM’s biggest DJs sounded off over the weekend in response to both shootings, which were barely 13 hours apart. The El Paso shooter has been arrested and charged with capital murder; the Dayton shooter was reportedly killed by police about 30 seconds after he fired his first shot.
