Dance Music Venues, Promoters & More Form Underground4Ukraine Fundraising Events Initiative
Underground4Ukraine, a new fundraising initiative to support Ukraine in the wake of the Russian invasion, has been launched to “unite the underground against war”.
Various European clubs, venues, promoters, artists and labels have already joined the network, with Alter Ego and IsBurning from Amsterdam, Carpet & Snares from Lisbon and Hangar from Brussels among the names that have signed up so far.
“In the midst of every chaos there is an opportunity. For kindness, for solidarity, for kinship,” says Underground4Ukraine. “Art is not made to decorate apartments, but to move, to propel, to create new realities.”
Underground4Ukraine will donate 50% of the funds collected each month to the Ukrainian Women’s Fund and the remaining 50% to Urgent Action Fund. For more information on how to get involved with Underground4Ukraine, head over to their website.
A number of Brussels-based event organizers are hosting an outdoor festival tomorrow (March 10) at the Atomium in Brussels, with sets from Belgian DJs and all proceeds going to Underground4Ukraine. Take tickets here and see the flyer below.
