Preview: Party for Peace in NYC with Red Dot Relief
“People who are in a position to help need to understand that we have to. This world is all of us together, we are all human, we need to look after each other.” - Seth Troxler
Back in 2002, Parties 4 Peace was created in Japan with intentions of bringing awareness of music and the arts from Tokyo to New York City. In commemoration of the 1 year anniversary of the Great Eastern Japan Earthquake, Parties 4 Peace will be hosting a special event this evening in New York City to support Red Dot Relief. Red Dot Relief is a group of both artists and supporters of the electronic dance music community coming together to call for action, raising money and spreading awareness of Japan’s disaster stricken regions. Major adovacates include Seth Troxler and friends working alongside Crosstown Rebels. Tuning Spork Efforts Team, and more; all working to influence society to follow and donate in any capacity to the disaster relief fund. Artists aren’t the only ones involved in the relief, but promoters, club owners, agencies, event organizers, music labels, and even clubbers are all supporting the foundation.
Tonight’s Party 4 Peace event includes:
Jay Haze (contexterrior/tuningspork)
Kusda (Raft Tokyo / Patagonica 2011)
Eric Cloutier (Bunker / Brooklyn)
John Selway (CSM Records)
