ill.Gates Saves A Life
Late in to the night on Saturday/Sunday morning as the sun began to rise ill.Gates was hard at work throwing down at The Untz Satellite Stage while things got quite weird in the woods.
The hammocks strewn about the trees were rattling with the bass as fest heads were vibing out in the pit.
As it came time for ill.Gates to transition in to the next track he had to quickly re-think his strategy.
A moth had landed on the cue button preventing Gates from continuing with his current progression.
Where most people would simply shoo the critter away or perhaps smash it all together, Gates instead hopped on the microphone and enlightened the crowd as to what was going down.
His message? That he would not kill it because everyone should have respect for all living things.
You can only imagine the crowd’s response as iLL went on to dedicate the next track to fuzzy little Apamea before throwing down one of the dirtiest beats of the weekend after the moth finally fluttered away.
