David Guetta’s live streamed DJ set for COVID-19 relief on Saturday night, 18th April, raised over $700,000.
The two-hour DJ set, which was streamed from Miami, set out to raise funds for the World Health Organisation, Feeding South Florida, Feeding America, and the French Fondation Hôpitaux de Paris. As well as covering the production costs for the stream, Guetta pledged to match every dollar donated during the show itself. At the time of writing, over $700,000 has been raised. You can still donate via Guetta’s website here.
“I’m still buzzing from what was an incredible night shared with many,” Guetta shared in an official statement. “Thank you to everyone who joined and to those who were able to donate. Although this is a very unusual time, it was magical to connect with you all through music last night. Most importantly, we’ve raised money that will help those who need it most.”
Various guests made appearances throughout the stream, including Bob Sinclair, Oliver Heldens, Alok and a number of football players, including Ludovic Giuly, Olivier Giroud and Robert Pires.
