Techno rave held at Chillnobyl

 Over the years, raves have been held in some unusual and unique locations, but we must agree that there is no more unique location than the Chernobyl zone.  “I Invite Everyone to Chernobyl Future Rave”  The host was Igor Oprya , who spent weeks cleaning the abandoned village club building and turning it into a place where a dance floor and bar could be located. The video used for the promotion showed him writing “I Invite Everyone to Chernobyl Future Rave” on a sign at the entrance to the city of Pripyat. However, not everything went smoothly, as some groups condemned him for violating the ban on the contaminated zone. Rave called “Chillnobyl” focused on strong techno, with a long list of local DJs playing until the early hours of the morning. With a well-equipped bar and a great visit, the rave went better than expected. More info and photos about Chernobyl Future Rav e  HERE !  Let's make a techno universe , we are sure we can do it :)  Let's rave! :) 

New report highlights the effects of DJs on climate change

 A new report by German organisation Clean Scene has focused on the effects that international DJs have on climate change.  The report, titled ‘ Last Night a DJ Took a Flight, ’ is described as “exploring the carbon footprint of touring DJs and looking towards alternative futures within the dance music industry. Clean Scene analysed the carbon footprint of Resident Advisor’s top 1000 DJs touring in 2019.  They found that between them the DJs take 51,000 flights annually, travelling 117 million kilometres.   This uses 3.2million litres of fuel, releasing 35million kg of CO2 into the air.   They note that this is equivalent to 20,000 households’ electricity for one year, powering 8000 festivals for three days, or pressing 25 million records. “The demand for a small number of DJs to tour constantly is the result of an environmentally unsustainable industry” the report reads.  “And an industry that we have an opportunity to collectively reimagine.” The report also “By travelling over 118,
