To make a positive impact, it is time to take the spirit and togetherness of dance music to a new level.
– The Apollo Aid Foundation was created to undertake that mission.
How does it work? All participating artists will donate one performance fee per year to support causes that are close to their hearts.
Moreover, with the Apollo Aid Fan Fund, the Apollo Aid Foundation not only enables the Dance music community to help decide which causes should be supported as a whole by the Foundation, but also gives them the opportunity to make donations themselves and join the movement of giving back on a large scale.
Launched on March 8th 2016, The Apollo Aid Foundation has already teamed up with more than 50 artists, such as Solarstone, John 00 Fleming, John Askew, Bryan Kearney and Allan Morrow just to name a few.
The UK based charity, founded by Dan Willis and Nick Tuckett, received early support and guidance from various industry professionals, dance music enthusiasts and artists, all of which have proved invaluable in turning the concept into an operational charitable organisation.
‘I am looking forward to seeing Apollo Aid achieve so much in giving back to those in need in the world. It is exciting, and very positive that we are working hard to unite the Dance music industry to make such difference with the foundation globally.’ cofounder Dan Willis states.
The Apollo Aid Foundation (AAF) has also partnered with Los Angeles’ premier club, Exchange, to host an Apollo Aid night to raise money for charity. The multi-artist event will be the first chance for fans to actively join the AAF movement by just celebrating with their favorite DJs.
More information about the event will be announced soon, but one thing is for sure, this is an unprecedented opportunity for all artists to join and start giving back together on the largest scale this industry has ever seen.
