Beatport Announces 'ReConnect' a Global Music Series in Support of COVID-19 Funds
No matter who you are, you always have two choices: you can either look on the bright side, or on the negative side of things. Over the past few weeks, we've seen the dance music community choose to focus on the positives, despite the undeniably challenging times we are all currently living. As such, Beatport has followed suit by revealing an exciting new project, guaranteed to keep everyone's spirits high!
Kicking off on Friday, March 27, 2020, at 4:00 p.m. EST, Beatport will present ReConnect via their official Twitch channel. The Global Music Series is a 24-hour livestreamed event that will feature some of the biggest names in dance music. Viewers can expect special performances by A-Trak, ANNA, BLOND:ISH, Carl Cox, Duke Dumont, GRIZ, Nicole Moudaber, Nora En Pure, UMEK, WAX MOTIF, and many more!
Not only will virtual participants be treated to a soon-to-be captivating show, they will also have the opportunity to donate. When tuning in, you'll be able to choose whether you'd like to help the COVID-19 Hardship Fund, directly supporting members of the Association for Electronic Music (AFEM), or the World Health Fund’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund. The initiative is, once again, proving why our community is one that we are so proud to be a part of! As an added bonus, there will also be chances throughout the stream to win very special giveaways. Beatport's CEO, Robb McDaniels, shared,
"Over the past few weeks, we have seen so much of humanity come together as one to battle the escalation of the COVID-19 virus in an effort to protect the most vulnerable. With so many of us sheltered in our homes, wanting to stay connected to the people and music that plays such a positive role in our lives, Beatport and the passionate DJ community we work with on a daily basis feel compelled to deliver a unique music experience directly into homes across the world."
