In honor of EDC weekend, Insomniac hosted their own live stream, EDC Virtual Rave-A-Thon. During the 3-day event, host Pasquale Rotella introduced Rave Recovery, a relief fund created specifically for dance music fans impacted by the COVID-19 health crisis.
Rotella shared a formal statement about the fund:
Looking out for one another and giving back have been cornerstones of rave culture since people first set foot on the dance floor. With so many experiencing hardships brought on by COVID-19, those principles are more important than ever. Even though we’re isolated, no one should feel alone. Rave Recovery was created to support fans within our dance music community who need assistance—and hopefully inspire others to reach out, connect, and give back. The fund is being administered by In Place of War, a 501(c)(3) organization, in partnership with Insomniac Cares.
So far, Insomniac has raised $21,636.25 for the cause. Their goal is to reach $100,000. You can donate here.
