UPDATE: Eric Prydz will be playing a special charity event on Saturday, December 17th in Los Angeles. All proceeds will be donated to a charity of the cancer patients choosing.
It’s rare that you find a compassionate artist who is just as awesome as their fanbase, and Eric Prydz is one of those artists that stands out in that category. It’s no secret that Eric has one of the most rabid fanbases in EDM, with a whole subreddit dedicated to his music and activities on Reddit.
One of his fans, in particular, wanted a big request from Eric. Having been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer with only a few short months to live, fan YardleyYeti requested the help of the r/ericprydz subreddit to help him get i tough with Eric’s team. YardleyYeti is not a position to freely travel, and he wanted to inquire if Eric could get booked to play on the east coast so he could see his favorite artist play for him one last time
And luckily, this story has a happy ending.Within a day, YardleyYeti reported, Eric Prydz and his team responded back. Although they can;t book Eric to play on the east coast. YardleyYeti will be flown out to LA, given a hotel, and was offered to attend Eric’s New Years Day show at The Observatory OC on January 1st, 2017.
It’s not everyday you see an artist this genuine and caring, and we thank Eric for renewing our faith in good vibes and good music

I don’t honestly know how to put the following into words. It’s unbelievable.
So I got an email today from Eric’s manager asking for my number and got a call today. As you all know Eric isn’t much of a flyer so it would be hard for him to get him onto the east coast soon. So they offered me to see him in LA January 1st! Already crazy.
Not even 30 minutes later he calls back and tells me “So I talked to Eric and the rest of the team and we want to throw you your own personal LA show. ALL tickets sold will go to the charity of your choosing.” Theyre flying me out. Getting me a hotel room. And it looks like we’re going to have another LA show before Christmas that the team will be posting about shortly. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH. THE LOVE FELT TODAY WAS OUTSTANDING. THEY ARE THE BEST IN THE WORLD.
