DJ who claimed to save lives at illegal London rave has been fined Â£ 12,000
During the pandemic, a popular solution to events and raves that stopped for more than a year was to organize illegal raves. In the UK and in Europe in particular they have become extremely popular and there is one DJ in particular who as stated Mixmag – claimed to “save lives” through the power of the dance floor and music, but has now been fined for his efforts in this direction.
The DJ in question, Jayden elworthy (27), claimed he was saving people’s lives and had already contracted the coronavirus, so he now has antibodies, in an attempt to “help” people through this rave. It seems he also had no remorse for his actions, as he had also told the police who had come to break the rave that there was “nothing wrong except the whole Covid thing” , stating that “we’re all past that now” and he also doesn’t care about the pandemic or the restrictions that were in place.
The rave which ran from May 29 to 30 took place in Enfield in a swamp with around 500 people in attendance, and at that time, meetings of more than 30 people were banned. Now Jayden Elworthy has been fined a hefty Â£ 12,000 for doing this, posting a photo of the letter sent to him on his Instagram account and stating ‘Rave well in force’.

It was stated that failure to pay the fine within ten days would result in jail time or a 50% increase in the fine. In audience notes, PC Blackburne Maze declared:
âAs the officers stood with Jayden, a number of people came from the bushes and a few more came to join us.
Jayden confirmed that he ‘intends to continue all day, other than the Covid restrictions, there is really nothing wrong with us doing here.’
