A charity live stream to aid powering hospitals in Ukraine is happening this weekend.
Launched in collaboration with the Berlin NGO Vitsche and Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskyy's fundraising initiative United 24, the Power Life in Ukraine livestream will take place this Saturday 4th February from the rooftop of Vivantes Hospital am Urban in the heart of Kreuzberg, Berlin.
From 2 PM CET via United We Stream, Ukraine-born DJ/producer Alinka, Cormac, Berlin's Cinthie, Cromby and Berghain resident Marcel Dettman will play hour-long sets. The final two sets, from DJ Mell G and Afterlife favourite Âme, will be live streamed via DJ Mag's YouTube channel from 7 PM CET. You can subscribe here.
In February 2022, Russia's president Vladimir Putin launched a full-scale invasion of neighbouring Ukraine. In response to this act of war, and an ensuing humanitarian crisis that has seen many Ukrainians displaced and forced to relocate to other cities or leave the country entirely, people have been coming together to share ways in which those affected can be best directly supported.
Speaking about Power Life in Ukraine, the organisers said: "Ukrainian civil society is going through the hardest winter in its history, suffering under constant rocket attacks and long-term electricity blackouts, while defending shared European values of self-identification and free will.
"The young and thriving Ukrainian electronic music scene has been shaping the resistance against russian aggression and oppression for 9 years and has deserved a solidarity action in the darkest hour."
The Power Life In Ukraine campaign has raised over €100,000 so far. You can donate here.
