After the first Beatport ReConnect live stream raised $180,000 in donations for the WHO’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund, and the AFEM Members’ COVID-19 Hardship Fund, the music company returns for a second round.
Effective Friday, April 17th, Beatport will host another event, this time featuring more top-notch talent like Tiësto, Kaskade, Jack Back (David Guetta), Deborah De Luca, Boys Noize, Anna Lunoe, Jauz and more. The show starts at 8 PM GMT and runs for a whopping 36 hours straight. While the first edition garnered over 11 million views from around the world in over 150 countries with 6,500 donors, this one has potential to be even bigger.
Robb McDaniels, CEO of Beatport, said “Our first ReConnect event absolutely shattered our expectations and brought the global electronic music community together in a time when we all needed a little joy and fun back in our lives. With an incredible lineup of the best electronic artists in the world, all donating their time and talents to this cause, we hope this next event is even bigger and raises more money for these great causes.”
