Reaktor Events finally released the new Katharsis 2017 promo video yesterday and once again, it instantly sparked controversy. The Dutch techno event has been known to use debatable footages in their promotions. In the past, Katharsis events have featured snippets of war victims, people fighting police and executions in their promotions. This year’s video included snippets of people falling from the Twin Towers from the 9/11 attacks. To no one’s surprise, the video received a ton of negative feedback and has since been taken down from their Facebook page.
