Beatport raised no less than $163,000 last weekend thanks to donations from the Dance Music community at large. The digital record shop hosted the biggest live-streaming event of the worldwide lockdown thus far, captivating 8.5 million listeners. The esteemed host of the stream, Pete Tong, announced the stream would carry on an extra ten hours for a total of 34. Sets from Rufus Du Sol, Nina Kravitz, Carl Cox, Duke Dumont, A-Trka, and several more rolled by hour after hour, Beatport soared past their goal of $150,000.
All proceeds are set to benefit AFEM, sent to support those adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. You can still donate to the cause via TILTIFY.
