A top DJ found Cowes scarier than inner-city New York.
In a series of Tweets, Jaguar Skills said the behaviour of some members of the crowd at his gig at Cowes Yacht Haven last Saturday, reminded him of crowds in the tough New York area of Queens Bridge.
Yacht haven bosses admitted there had been a few incidents but no more than they would have anticipated for such a large-scale event.
The masked DJ (pictured), who produces a mix of hip-hop, drum n’ bass and dubstep on his turntables, said he had a 'bizarre, fun and scary night on the IW’ in front of the 1,000-strong crowd.
He said: "I’ve DJ’d in the Queens Bridge projects before and I wasn’t as scared as I was tonight."
He added he may also have cracked a rib while he was 'crowd surfing.’
He added: "After doing three gigs way back with The Prodigy, they were no way as violent as the IW. Mental."
Yacht haven events manager, Ian Gregory, said: "It was a great night down here. We had a thousand revellers and as with any events, you do get a few incidents."
