Brighton DJ to live stream a non-stop 24-hour set to raise money for Music Venues Trust (MVT) to support venues struggling due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
Revenge, an LGBTQ+ nightclub in Brighton, will host the event where Toby Lawrence will take people across the globe on a musical journey in his self-isolation DJ station, with an entire day and night of uplifting anthems across a range of genres.
Broadcast live on Facebook from Friday 20th March at 12pm, viewers watching from home will be encouraged to request songs, comment with photos and videos of them dancing and – most importantly – donate to the MVT. All funds raised will go towards MVT’s sector support services to help more grassroots venues during this difficult time.
This event is also designed to unite people in isolation around the world. As well as protecting the public’s physical health, we cannot underestimate the impact COVID-19 is already having on people’s mental health and wellbeing. With many vulnerable and lonely individuals being encouraged – or forced – to remain in their homes, #dance4venues aims to bring everyone together through the universal power of music and dance.
Toby Lawrence, who is preparing for the 24-hour DJ marathon, says: “I’ve been incredibly lucky to work with some incredible venues in my career who have always looked after me and this is my opportunity to give a little something back.”
The live stream will commence at 12pm (GMT) on Friday 20th March you can follow/join in here
