What So Not, Yolanda Be Cool, PNAU, Nina Las Vegas & More Australian DJs To Play Wildfire Relief Benefit In Los Angeles
Continued wildfires across Australia have caused a growing handful of artists, other celebrities and orgs to step up and offer support to those on the frontlines of the environmental and humanitarian crisis. Together with over a dozen Australian DJ/producers from the global dance music circuit, local hotspot nightclub Academy LA has announced the Make It Rain wildfire relief benefit event.
On Wed., Jan. 29, Aussies What So Not, Yolanda Be Cool, PNAU, Nina Las Vegas, TyDI and more will get Hollywood dancing at Academy LA. 100 percent of the profits of the event, which will also include a silent auction, will be donated to Red Cross Australia, GivIt and NSW Wildlife Council.
"The feeling of complete helplessness got too much for us here in L.A., and we knew we needed to channel our energy into something bigger than ourselves. We're stoked to see how the dance music community has been so supportive of this cause and we look forward to seeing our friends and family at Academy on January 29th," Make It Rain organizers Andie Leon of Academy LA, Lorne Padman of Dim Mak and Tyson Illingworth a.k.a. tyDi shared in a press release.
"We No Speak Americano" producers Yolanda Be Cool will be hosting the house music room in collaboration with Aussie crew Sweat It Out/Club Sweat, which, of course, is slated to feature "very sweaty guests." The main room is also set to feature some star-studded guest sets from some more big name Aussies and their American counterparts.
