Electronic music bands together, DJs pledge support amidst Australian bushfire destruction

Australia is facing the worst wildfires the continent has seen in decades after months of persistent heat and drought. The wildfires have claimed 24 lives and more than 2,000 homes, 6.3 million hectares of land across the bush, national parks, and forests, and more than 500 million animals.

It’s no secret that many of electronic music’s best and brightest hail from down under, though artists around the world are banding together to bring attention to the crisis and to encourage fans to donate to the ongoing efforts to calm the fires and help those devastated by the destruction. Aussie electronic figurehead Nina Las Vegas is donating the proceeds from her entire NLV Records catalog, Alison Wonderland is donating proceeds from her merch store all month long. Those who are able to donate can find different donation platforms and causes here.
