Last week’s super typhoon Haiyan has left countless dead and missing in Asia. The response across the dance music community has been emphatic, with many leaving messages of support via their social network pages.
We were particularly warmed this week however to hear from the promoters of United Republiq – who are hosting an festival in the Philippine capital of Manila on November 21st.
They have informed us that headliners Axwell, Nicky Romero and No_ID have all pledged to make the trip and also that their entire fees will be donated to the relief effort. The promoters are also donating their profits to the same cause.
Big shouts to all involved! If you want to make a donation you can do so HERE.
