New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
The electronic music industry is uniting once more on the 19th, 20th and 21st June with Carl Cox, Eats Everything
and Nightmares on Wax amongst the headliners joining the party and inspiring DJ's around the world to join them and play a Set For Love.
Building on its hugely successful Set For Love in May, the Last Night A DJ Saved My Life charity are looking to continue fundraising in aid of its COVID-19 appeal with another record breaking event.
Raising more than £60,000 across a mammoth 72-hour simultaneous DJ live stream, more than 1,000 DJs took part last time from over 50 different countries. The event saw the likes of Louie Vega, Paul Oakenfold, Jackmaster, Nightmares On Wax, Doorly, Pioneer DJ, Mixcloud and many more industry heavyweights get involved. They were joined by thousands of other DJs of all levels and from all corners of the globe streaming and fundraising. Now LNADJ is taking Set For Love one step further to continue to help communities that are suffering drastically from the consequences of lockdown and with industry heavyweights like Carl Cox calling out to DJs around the world.
The headline sets will be hosted daily on the Last Night A DJ Saved My Life Facebook Page (facebook.com/lnadj.charity/) from 7pm CEST through to 1am on Friday 19th, Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st June. They can also be viewed on DanceTelevision social channels and the artists own channels. The weekend includes a Wax Da Jam showcase on the Saturday. Each session will finish with a community DJ handpicked by the charity for their fundraising efforts at the last Set For Love, giving them a dream opportunity to play alongside some major names.

The ongoing event has already seen invaluable work take place in Uganda, Tanzania, Nepal and Indonesia. LNADJ is encouraging community DJs, A-list celebrities, labels, promoters, producers and every one in between to get involved and help raise money to continue to help provide food parcels, fresh water and sanitation supplies to those suffering from the consequences of lockdown and COVID-19 in developing countries.
Jonny Lee, Founder of LNADJ said, "To see some of the most high profile DJs in the world come together with thousands of community DJs is a real inspiration. Although lockdown restrictions may be being lifted in places, the economic crisis for many is getting worse, not better. We're supporting vulnerable people in developing countries who have no savings, no benefits systems, no furlough! These communities need our help now more than ever so I urge anyone that wants to make a difference and help change people's lives to join us on June the 19th, 20th and 21st June by sharing a set, spreading the message or donating."
Carl Cox said "I am really looking forward to playing alongside my peers and to creating a very special musical journey for Set For Love, it feels good to do this for the cause of helping others, with our passion to share. See you all out there. Oh yes!"
said "Playing on line-ups with Carl is special every time, I never expected to be doing it ever, let alone from halfway around the world but it is lovely to be involved in such an inclusive concept such as Set For Love."
Those looking to take part and make a difference, can simply register at www.setforlove.org, choose the hour(s) they want to broadcast their set, choose the platform they want to broadcast it from and share the LNADJ fundraising link setforlovedoante.org. The sets will then be streamed simultaneously all weekend long, with DJs sharing the link for their fans, friends and family to donate and spread the hashtag #setforlove.
