Are you shattered that you can’t make it to Stereosonic in Melbourne today? This will make up for it… kind of.
To mark World AIDS Day, festival headliner and advocate Tiesto will be streaming his set through anti-AIDS charity RED’s YouTube Channel, along with many other acts on the festival’s lineup.
From 3pm, you’ll be able to catch performances from Tiesto, Avicii, Calvin Harris, Bingo Players, Chuckie, Dash Berlin, Infected Mushroom, JFK MSTRKRFT, Laidback Luke, Martin Solveig and Tommy Trash.
The stream builds on from Tiesto’s release of an exclusive compilation album, DANCE (RED), SAVE LIVES, which was released earlier this week. The compilation features material from Tiesto and many artists on the Stereosonic bill who are taking part in the stream – including Calvin Harris, Avicii and Diplo.
“When I went to Africa in 2006, I was struck by the devastating effect of AIDS. Now the world has an incredible chance to make sure that babies are born HIV free by 2015, and the dance community is going to make a lot of noise to help make this happen.”
