Hardwell is always on some next level thing, and his latest venture is breaking the mold for a great cause!
The Dutch DJ has optimized on his large following to start up his United We Are Foundation, which strives to provide education to underprivileged children.
His first event, “World’s Biggest Guestlist” in Mumbai set a precedent within the electronic music community by building an audience of 75,000 and raising enough money to aide 3,000 children from ages 8 to 18 — proving shows can make a world of difference in real lives. Now, he promises to return again in 2017, with even bigger goals.
Hardwell said via edm.com: “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.”
Other DJs are making a difference, too! Recently, Zedd held his incredible ACLU benefit show (highlights here), featuring Skrillex, Mija, and a slew of talented musicians at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
