Dutch EDM producer Hardwell stopped a DJ gig mid-set in Myanmar this Saturday to dramatically stop a fight that had broken out in the crowd. While the video of the incident uploaded by Facebook user May Phyu Sin doesn't capture the fight itself, it does show the artist stopping the music and speaking to the crowd. Using strong words to urge the participants to stop or leave the festival altogether, he makes it clear that he can't tolerate anything but peaceful partying.

"Yo dudes, what the fuck is goin' on there? If you want to fight, then you fight out of the fuckin' party," he said. "We're here to party, we're not to fight here. Get your ass out the fucking festival, we're here to party with no fighting, it's all peace and love tonight."

Since being posted the day of the show, the video has circulated and been viewed almost 200,000 times.

Hardwell's set was part of the 808 Festival's debut in Yangon, which lasted from December 10-11.
