In December 2015, DJ/producer Hardwell teamed up with India’s Guestlist4Good Social Enterprise and Mumbai-based non-profit organisation Magic Bus, to stage an aid event that provided education for over 18,000 young and underprivileged children living in India.
Now, in 2017, Hardwell has pledged to return to Mumbai and headline the third day of the World’s Biggest Guestlist Festival, with the ambitious task of educating a further 100,000 young children.
Talking about the target for the 2017 edition of the ‘World’s Biggest Guest List Festival’ and his project the United We Are Foundation, Hardwell said: “In 2015 we helped put the spotlight on something that is of great importance to the future of many young children living in Mumbai. The entire team were blown away by the response of the fans and sponsors that day but it felt like only the beginning of the journey. Although we achieved, and excelled, with our donations goal, we all knew that more could be done. So, it is for this reason we decided to go back to India and make the goal even bigger by aiming to educate 100,000 young children. And this time, I’ll be joined by some of my biggest and best DJ friends who will be helping us achieve this aim.”
Fellow EDM superstar DJ David Guetta launched a similar initiative back in 2016 titled Guetta4Good, where he played a show in aid of underprivileged children in India.
