UPDATED: Anonymous reveals Drumcode party in Paris as ISIS target
UPDATE: 6:15PM EST:
Anonymous has denied spreading any rumors about possible ISIS targets.
While France remains in a state of emergency following ISIS attacks, hacker community Anonymous pledged to aid the French and other international governments in their quest to bring down the terrorist organization. Already having verified several Twitter accounts tied to the group and shut down various propaganda websites, Anonymous has allegedly unveiled a list of possible targets ISIS plans on striking next.
One of the events listed is particularly jarring to the electronic music world – a strike on a Drumcode party beginning early Sunday morning in Paris. The gathering is hosted by Concrete, a Parisian techno institution known for its weekly after-parties for club goers occurring in the 12th arrondissement.
Artists set to play that day were Adam Beyer, Alan Fitzpatrick, and Joel Mull, Marcelus, and X1000. Comments expressing fear and concern began to circulate on Concrete’s event page, prompting promoters to release a statement deeming the alert a hoax. Later on as the party reached its closing hours, they posted a photo simply reading, “Still standing, still dancing.”
