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.
Along with the announcement of Together For Beirut Beatport unveiled the lineup that’s filled to the brim with some of the best names in the house and techno scene. Artists like Carl Cox, ANNA, John Digweed, Wehbba, Louie Vega, Paco Osuna, Dubfire, and more will be taking the stage to make this livestream a memorable one.
Check out the set times for the first part of the DJ Marathon below and make sure to follow their Twitch channel to get an update the moment they go live. Donations will go to Impact Lebanon supporting local essential NGOs such as the Lebanese Red Cross, Arcenciel, as well as music and arts-related charities in Beirut.
