10+ million hectares burnt. 2,000 buildings destroyed. 27 lives taken. 1 billion animals perished. Australia has suffered inconceivable destruction from megafires the size of Manhattan, with flames taller than the Sydney Opera House. Yet what is burning brightest in the wake of this climate crisis, is the light of support across the world.
On January 29, 2020 a roster of top-tier Aussie artists will hit the stage at Academy LA, including; WHAT SO NOT, PNAU, NINA LAS VEGAS, HOOK N SLING, TYDI, VASSY, STAFFORD BROTHERS, YOLANDA BE COOL, GG MAGREE, FEENIXPAWL, CUT SNAKE, and BROOKE EVERS. All profits from "Make It Rain" will be donated to three bushfire relief initiatives: Red Cross Australia, GIVIT, and NSW Wildlife Council (NWC).
“The feeling of complete helplessness got too much for us here in LA, 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 29,” said Aussie “Make It Rain” organizers Andie Leon (Academy LA), Lorne Padman (Dim Mak) and Tyson Illingworth (tyDi).
“Make It Rain” will include very special surprise guests throughout the evening in addition to a silent auction that will allow those in attendance to bid on highlight prizes. Tickets are on sale now.
Fans who cannot attend on the night will be able to hear the broadcast on SiriusXM Diplo’s Revolution on Saturday, February 1 and can donate to Red Cross Australia, GIVIT, and NSW Wildlife Council (NWC) via GoFundMe sites sponsored by the event.
