Beatport Releases Set Times for ‘Together For Beirut’ DJ Marathon [Watch Inside]

Beatport ReConnect Presents Together For Beirut

Beatport ReConnect announces their latest DJ marathon fundraiser ‘Together For Beirut’ to raise funds after the catastrophic explosion in Lebanon.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, Beatport has supported artists in the scene and charitable causes alike with the Beatport ReConnect livestream events. Now, they’ve set their sights on helping those affected by the catastrophic explosion that happened in Beirut earlier this month with Together For Beirut, a two-part, 24 hour DJ marathon that’s set to take place on August 22 and September 13.

Bringing together the minds of Nicole Moudaber, WILD Tulum, Factory People, Beatport, and a number of Lebanese DJs and promoters, this two-part event aims to raise a quarter of a million dollars for disaster relief and direct aid for those in need. To accomplish this, they’re asking dance music lovers around the world to tune in to the livestreams, catch some of the amazing artists set to spin, and donate during the show.

“These fundraising events will provide much needed relief and support to the people of Beirut and the many affected by the recent tragedy. Officials estimate the explosion caused up to $15 billion (£11.5bn) of damage. International financial aid and support has been overwhelming, but it’s not enough. We must support in any way we can to help, and in addition, our efforts will also be helping the music and arts industry of Lebanon which has been wiped out.”
