Beatport, the world’s leading destination for electronic music, announced that they will be running the second music marathon event in its global music series, ReConnect, this Friday April 17, starting at 8pm GMT and running for 36 hours.

 

Following last month’s phenomenally successful fundraiser, Beatport have curated another formidable line-up of electronic music heavyweights, who will DJ live from around the globe in support of the Association For Electronic Music, Bridges for Music and Direct Relief non-profit organizations. 

Featuring the biggest artists in the electronic music world including Tiësto, Jack Back (David Guetta), Modeselektor, and more, this electronic showcase will enable devoted fans to ‘reconnect’ once again during this unprecedented pandemic crisis, while raising vital funds to support those severely affected.

“Our first ReConnect event absolutely shattered our expectations and brought the global electronic music community together in a time when we all needed a little joy and fun back in our lives” said Robb McDaniels, CEO of Beatport. “With an incredible lineup of the best electronic artists in the world, all donating their time and talents to this cause, we hope this next event is even bigger and raises more money for these great causes ”

Multi awarded and Grammy nominated artist Bonobo landed in South Africa a few days before his sold out show at Kirstenbosch to share his career insights at the Bridges Academy in Langa (Cape Town). We are honoured and thankful to him and his team for sharing the secrets of his consistent growth in the world stage through a sound that could have considered letfield at some point but got him to sell out venues world wide.
