In the wake of America's worst mass shooting in U.S. history, some of EDM's biggest names will be throwing a benefit concert at OMNIA nightclub at Caesars Palace on 7th November to raise money for the victims' fund.
A number of EDM's biggest names regularly play in Vegas and almost immediately threw their considerable weight behind victims' fund, donating several hundred thousand dollars in the days after the shooting.
Calvin Harris has donated his booking fee for nightclub Omnia to the victims of the Las Vegas shooting.
In a post on Instagram, he explained he’d be making the donation “in the hope it will help rebuild the lives of the victims’ families and those injured”. You can read the post in full below.
A regular in Vegas, Harris has been a resident at clubs Hakkasan, Wet Republic and Omnia and is listed as the highest paid DJ in the world, meaning the donation is likely to be significant.
Diplo has donated $100,000 to the Las Vegas shooting victims' fund.
The Major Lazer frontman has also called on other DJs and Hotels to match his generosity.
U.S. Police are preparing for heightened security challenges at outdoor venues following the Las Vegas tragedy at Route 91 Harvest music festival on Sunday (1st October).
The shooting, which was the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history – leaving 59 people dead and over 500 injured – was carried out by 64-year-old retired accountant Stephen Paddock.
In the wake of the mass shooting, acting Miami Police Chief Jorge Colina has said the Miami Police Department must focus on the challenges of policing outdoor venues.
Tiësto debuted a brand-new Martin Garrix production over the weekend when the Dutch DJ performed at Hakkasan Las Vegas as part of the club’s Labor Day celebrations.
