The virtual version of Junction 2 was scheduled for today

London techno festival Junction 2 have postponed their virtual festival J2V, which was scheduled to take place today.

A statement from the organisers said:

"After collective discussion with our artists, partners and team, we have made the decision to postpone the J2V Virtual Festival.

"Following our statement on Tuesday, we stand in solidarity with black people and all those affected by racism. This is a universal discussion that needs all of us to stop, think and do better. For our part, we have a platform, privilege, and the tools at our disposal to invoke change as best we can.
 
"The event would have brought together a community with a reach far beyond our normal West London home, but tomorrow, across London and the globe, people from all communities will unite and we believe it’s important for as many of us as possible to join them.

"Huge thanks to all our community, artists, partners and our wider family for their support during this campaign. We will confirm the rescheduled date for J2V when the time is right. We’re sad we won’t be able to share our virtual world with you this weekend, but at this important time we feel the dance floor can wait."

The statement went on to say that Black Lives Matter has been added to the list of charities that the event will support when it does take place.
