Make It Rain stormed Los Angeles – raised over $75,000 for Australian bushfire relief

On January 29th, 2020 a roster of top-tier artists hit the stage at Academy LA, to put on a star-studded night to remember. With over one thousand tickets sold for the one-night-only performance, the event raised over Eighty Thousand Dollars towards desperately needed Australian bushfire relief ($AUD120,000).

Featured Artists included a stellar Aussie roster, plus some very special international guests, including; What So Not, Don Diablo, Kaskade, A-Trak, Bonnie & Clyde, PNAU, Nina Las Vegas, Hook N Sling, Sam Gellaitry, tyDi, VASSY, Yolanda Be Cool, GG Magree, Feenixpawl, and Brooke Evers.

Hosted by Australian media personalities Jason Dundas and Maude Garret, guests of the event roared when each M.C. welcomed secret guests to the stage. Standout moments included: VASSY’s acapella rendition of her David Guetta hit “Bad”, followed by the emergence of Don Diablo, who travelled direct from Brazil for the show, and ultimately the What So Not all-star set, where the DJ was joined by friends including A-Trak, Peking Duk, Sam Gellaitry, Bonnie & Clyde – the pumping console was enough to rival the Academy dance floor, which was bustling with elated, high-energy fans.

Fans can still support “Make It Rain” through donating directly on the website, or participating in the silent auction, which features hero prizes including; Coachella VIP passes, EDC Las Vegas tickets, hotel stays, celebrity personal trainer sessions, gag-worthy make-up kits, artworks painted at the event and more. 100% proceeds will be donated to charity, and bidding is open until Friday 31st January 9:00PM PST.

SiriusXM Diplo’s Revolution will broadcast the event on Saturday, February 1. Fans can also stream the “Make It Rain For Australia” ‘mint’ playlist takeover on Spotify for a limited time.
