In response to Typhoon Haiyan that hit the Philippines, Ferry Corsten has initiated Donate and Dance, an event where top DJs from The Netherlands will perform to help raise funds for the Dutch calamity fund GIRO 555. This benefit show, which takes place on November 20, will be held in Amsterdam’s Panama Nightclub to promote awareness and encourage donations towards those who have been affected by the typhoon.
Ferry holds personal ties to the Philippines, and he expresses, “It breaks my heart to see what has happened in the Philippines. My wife is Filipino, our daughter is half Filipino, and of course we have many family and friends who live there, who have been directly affected by the typhoon. Hundreds of thousands have lost everything and are in urgent need for help. This is why the benefit ‘Donate and Dance has been set up. We are so happy that so many DJs have reacted positively for this event and been able to set this up in a few days. Unfortunately, some DJs were out of the country so that they cannot be there for the evening, but many will be supporting our cause via their social media. We’ve already received financial donations for this cause. We have an amazing line up such as Quintino, Blasterjaxx, Dennis Ruyer, Jacob van Hage, Marco V, Sandro Silva, Sied van Riel, Oliver Twizt, and myself that will be playing on the evening. It is our hope that through this event we can influence others to show their support for the victims in their own way. ”
The lineup for the event includes:
