“Looking out for one another and giving back have been cornerstones of rave culture since people first set foot on the dancefloor,” says Insomniac Founder Pasquale Rotella. “With so many people experiencing hardships brought on by COVID-19, those principles are more important than ever. Even though we’re isolated, no one should feel alone. Rave Recovery was created to support fans within our dance music community who need assistance—and hopefully inspire others to reach out, connect, and give back.”
The event will be held on Insomniac’s YouTube and Twitch channels. Some of the proceeds from the event will go to support the In Place of War’s COVID-19 Emergency Fund, supporting vulnerable communities.
