In the past few days, artists like Seth Troxler, Diplo and Dillon Francis are making announcements on their social media about giving money to help the victims of tragic events like the Las Vegas shooting or the tropical storms in Puerto Rico.
Diplo announced via his Twitter page that he will donate 100k to Las Vegas victims’ fund. The donation will go to the fund established by Clark County Comission, GoFundMe and other funds that are helping those victims.
Dillon Francis is going to do the same but half the Money is going to help the victims of the tropical storm in Puerto Rico.
Seth Troxler, one of the headliners of Ultra Mexico, pledged 10k towards Mexico city earthquake relief fund and asked his fellow Ultra Mexico headliners (Martin Garrix, Richie Hawtin, Knife Party and others) to do the same or donate 10% of their artist fee to the cause. So far, only Martin Garrix stepped up and donated 10k to help the victims.
Also, Output Club has announced a line-up full of New York legends to perform at a benefit event for Puerto Rico on October 10.
Output will donate 100% of door proceeds to The Empire State Relief and Recovery Effort for Puerto Rico.
Todd Terry, Danny Krivit, Tony Humphries and others are headliners of this event.
