All profits raised from “Make It Rain” will be donated to three bushfire relief initiatives: Red Cross Australia, GivIt, and NSW Wildlife Council.
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. The event raised over Eighty Thousand Dollars towards desperately needed Australian bushfire relief ($AUD120,000). They sold over one thousand tickets sold for the one-night-only performance.
Featured Artists included a stellar Aussie roster, plus some very special international guests. This includes; 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.
The event was 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. A standout moment included VASSY’s acapella rendition of her David Guetta hit “Bad”. This followed by the emergence of Don Diablo, who traveled directly from Brazil for the show. 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.
