Since its inception, the dance music community has been defined by positivity, ingenuity, and unity. Now comes the time to channel that collective strength to help shape the future young voters want to live in. Introducing: Rave The Vote, which aimed to push beyond the tenants of hedonism and create a world worth celebrating.
The event, put on by Lost Resort TV in partnership with INFAMOUS PR, 2+2 Management, and Soul Clap, is a voter registration and fundraising digital event aimed to rally the dance music community around the pillars of change and unity. Broadcasting across four twelve-hour episodes beginning July 24, Rave The Vote has gathered some of the most credible names in electronic music alongside outspoken community leaders with a shared ethos of motivating viewers to register to vote and donate to the Black Lives Matter movement.
Rave The Vote 2020’s musical lineup has been carefully curated to represent North America’s deep dance music and hip-hop roots, a showcase of the continents most beloved stars and niche trailblazers alike. The result is a multi-genre billing that spans sound and era in the name of a better future.
Viewers will be treated to streams from some of the founding members of rave, including Carl Craig, Louie Vega, DJ Pierre, DJ Heather, and DJ Minx; alongside flag bearers of the next generation of house and techno The Martinez Brothers, Black Madonna, Seth Troxler, Soul Clap, Rich Medina, AceMoMa, and Ash Lauryn.
The pulse of the American tech house sound will also be on full display with sets from Justin Martin, SOFI TUKKER, Walker & Royce, Ardalan, VNSSA, Kevin Knapp, and more. After parties will be hosted by Desert Hearts and House of EFunk.
Paying homage to our nation’s diverse musical roots, Rave The Vote welcomes a strong contingent of live vocal performances and hip-hop inspired selections.
