The producers behind the event released a joint statement that the live stream event will now take place on June 12-14.
Digital Mirage, the popular online festival put on by Proximity and Brownies & Lemonade, has announced that it will no longer take place this weekend, June 3-5. The reason for the decision is stand in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter protests that are occurring nationwide in response to the George Floyd murder at the hands of four Minneapolis police officers.
“We do not want our festival to divert any attention from the Black Lives Matter movement and the current states of the country,” the producers penned in a social media statement. “We stand in solidarity with the black community. We will spend time educating on the deep injustice in this country and use our platform as a voice for change.”
All artists will be retained for the next weekend’s ensuing edition of Digital Mirage, including Big Gigantic, Boys Noize, Malaa, San Holo, and many more. All proceeds raised from Digital Mirage 2.0 will be going to the Equal Justice Initiative and Color Of Change.
