Jackmaster issues apology for ‘inappropriate’ behavior whilst intoxicated at this year’s Love Saves The Day Festival
Jackmaster has issued an apology for his behavior at this year’s Love Saves The Day festival in Bristol this past May.
While the Facebook post does not directly address the specific issue at hand, Jack does address what he’s called “inappropriate” behavior, which includes acting “offensively to staff at the event and [damaging] equipment.” Jack said he takes full responsibility for the situation and that he has also been making changes in his lifestyle to avoid making similar mistakes in the future. He also thanked the festival for its “professionalism” and “maintaining openness.”
Love Saves The Day has since responded, adding that the festival took the initial complaints “extremely seriously” and “fully investigated” the issues at hand.
“Jack met with us and representatives of the staff involved and showed genuine remorse [and] full responsibility for his actions,” Love Saves The Day said. “Our staff and family have accepted his apology and consider this matter closed, whilst reserving the right to further pursue complaints at such point in the future that we are ever aware of this behaviour being repeated.”
Read Jackmaster’s full apology which he originally posted on Facebook below.
“I am firm believer in equality and treating people with respect. As such, I want to deeply, unequivocally and publicly apologise for my actions and behaviour at Love Saves The Day festival this year.
I behaved inappropriately and offensively to staff at the event, and damaged equipment, whilst heavily intoxicated. Although I don’t recognise the person recounted to me, I take full responsibility for my actions and the effect on those involved – I am sorry.
As much as this was out of character: substances are an individual’s choice, not an excuse. I have already made major changes to my lifestyle, and will continue these ongoing. Over the last few weeks I have done everything in my ability to confront and address the repercussions of my actions head-on, and apologise personally to those that I affected. This post will serve to remind me that my behaviour was unacceptable, and it is a bid to address issues in the wider events and music industries.
I appreciate the professionalism of Love Saves the Day for taking a strong stance for their staff, whilst maintaining openness throughout.”
