The Melbourne bounce artist Will Sparks has made a public apology in response to his behaviour at one of the Ultra Australia events. He was accused of verbally abusing and intimidating an assistant tour manager when she was cleaning out his trailer – with the lady in question revealing what happened to Your EDM.

Using aggressive language, Sparks refused to move out of the way of the room, punching a door closed and calling her offensive names. After acknowledging the claims, the producer and DJ came back with this statement:

“I cannot express how regretful and apologetic I am regarding the incident that unfolded in Sydney on Feb 24. I was aggressive and said some unforgiving remarks that made no sense at all and were simply not true. At no point was I ever physical with any of the male or female staff. This is is completely out of character for me. Never in my life have I reacted in such a way, I am very embarrassed by my actions.

Unfortunately this was alcohol fuelled, which is no excuse. I had some built up personal frustrations which all came out at once, at an innocent individual who was just doing their job.

This is a massive learning curve for me. I embarrassed not only myself, but my whole team as well which I hate myself for.

I’m taking full responsibility for my actions and am willing to do what it takes to mend the situation as best I can.

I have also issued my apology to the person affected.”
