Live streams have brought DJs right into our homes as we take measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19. This Friday, April 24, EDMTunes brings DJs from around the world for the first all-Asian online music festival JadeTopia. Starting at 4:00pm EST, EDMTunes is highlighting the many Asian artists in dance music to raise money for COVID-19 relief efforts, and take a stand against racism. All proceeds and donations will go to Direct Relief, a humanitarian aid organization providing masks and protective and essential medical items to health workers in more than 80 countries.
“Over the past few months, Asians have been victims of racial crimes due to COVID-19. By creating JadeTopia, we hope to raise money to assist our health workers through Direct Relief as well as present Asians everywhere the opportunity to stand together during these unprecedented times,” said Michael Tam, EDMTunes Managing Editor.
JadeTopia features a musically and geographically diverse lineup with ELEPHANTE (USA), HENRY FONG (USA), DJ SODA (South Korea), TOKYO MACHINE (Japan), ANGGER DIMAS (Indonesia), BEAUZ (USA), DRUU (USA), FLORIAN PICASSO (Vietnam/France), JUSTIN OH (South Korea), MYRNE (Singapore), RAIDEN (South Korea), RIDDLER (USA), YETEP (USA), and XCRPT (USA).
“We’ve had so much time to reflect on our priorities during these past weeks in quarantine. We wanted to utilize our platform for something bigger than ourselves and aid in this time of crisis,” said EDMTunes CEO Andrew Cheng. “When Michael approached me with the JadeTopia concept, I immediately thought it was an excellent way to simultaneously raise money and awareness. It’s incredible to see the immense amount of support we have received from both artists and partners. We’re excited to see how people will come together in this virtual festival to raise significant funds for Direct Relief.” -
The event is hosted by EDMTunes and will premiere on Facebook Live and Twitch. Facebook groups Subtle Asian Ravers and Subtle Asian Dating will also stream the event.
