Zedd locks Skrillex, Macklemore, more for show rallying against Trump’s anti Muslim ban
Full line-up and tickets go on sale next week…
Zedd announced that he would be arranging a show to raise funds to help the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) rally against President Donald Trump’s anti-immigration ban earlier this week.
Now, he’s dropped the first phase of the line-up for the show, which is set to take place at the Staples Center, Los Angeles on Monday 3rd April.
Zedd is joined on the line-up by Skrillex, Macklemore, Tinashe, Imagine Dragons, Incubus, Daya and Halsey. You can see the tweet that announced the news below.
In a follow up post, Zedd announced that the full line-up will drop on Thursday 9th February when tickets go on sale.
The anti-immigration order that spurred Zedd to organise the show blocks entry to the US for citizens of Iran, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Sudan and Libya for 90 days as well as suspending admission to Syrian refugees.
It was met by wide condemnation, including that from the ACLU, who filed a lawsuit against Trump. That lead to a federal judge ordering a stay on the President’s order.
Profits from Zedd’s show will go to the ACLU. Check out the full details below.
WELCOME! - PHASE 1 LINEUP
