Over $6,000 worth of DJ equipment was stolen from a secret afterparty outside of Sydney that featured the members of The xx. The group has been down under for some tour dates and then went to an after party at a secret location in an unused bunker with Jamie xx, Romy, Jono Ma and others performing.
According to Stoney Roads, the party was a success, but the promoters, who fronted the cost of the party, had $6,000 of their DJ equipment stolen at the event. The event was free, so there was no way of using ticket money to cover the costs. Nearly 400 people showed up to the event that went into the early morning.
The thief or thieves made off with CDJs, a mixer, headphones and lights at around 6:30 a.m.
While it does seem logical to say just have better security, that can be expensive and they may be in on it. Or don't steal.
