Nottingham DJs Invited to Join Global Charity Stream in Aid of Covid-19

8 May 20

Local selectors can play their part in dance music history this weekend by playing a set for what aims to be the world’s largest-ever simultaneous live stream DJ event in aid of the Last Night A DJ Saved My Life (LNADJ) Covid-19 Emergency Appeal.

‘Set For Love’ is a 72-hour dance music marathon from groove-loving balearic charity, Last Night A DJ Saved My Life (LNADJ). This bank holiday will see DJs simultaneously get in the mix and stream live from 12am (GMT) on Friday 8th May until midnight (GMT) on Sunday 10th May, entertaining dancers and raising funds for its Covid-19 Emergency Appeal.

Nottingham DJs can broadcast their ‘Set For Love’ to help raise money for those suffering from the impact of coronavirus in Africa and other developing countries. 

Those looking to take part can simply register at www.setforlove.org

Jonny Lee, Founder of LNADJ said: “The idea for ‘Set for Love’ Live Streams has been born out of the adversity our partners in developing countries are facing during these challenging and unprecedented times. We work with organisations helping the most vulnerable and they have been drastically affected by lockdown. In some of these communities, a day without work means a day without food.  

“We’re calling on DJs of all levels across Nottingham, whether amateur or professional, to get involved. The same goes for promoters, record labels and all involved within the electronic music industry locally. Whether you’re streaming to thousands of fans or your friends and family, you really can make a difference. 

“Just £20 can feed a family in Uganda for a month.” 

Mixcloud, Point Blank, Loopmasters, Loopcloud, Audiolock, Brighton Music Conference, Data Transmission, FunktionOne, DanceTV, Izotope and Mixmasters are backing the project.

After originally launching at Las Dalias in Ibiza 2019, Set For Love featured 30 of the island’s most popular resident DJs donating a set for charitable causes. All of the money raised from tickets went to building freshwater wells in India and Africa.

Over the last 10 years, LNADJ has supported children in crisis across the world, linking their love of dance music with various grassroots projects to help those in need. 

Last Night A DJ Saved My Life is a registered charity in England & Wales no 1142478.
