Beatport Presents: ReConnect In Solidarity with Ukraine
Beatport Presents: ReConnect In Solidarity with UkraineMarch 10, 2022
On Sunday, March 13th, Beatport will partner with Audius and Pioneer DJ for a 30+ hour music marathon to raise funds for those affected by the war in Ukraine.
Beginning at 1 AM EST / 7AM CET, ReConnect In Solidarity with Ukraine will stream performances from Chris Liebing, Nicole Moudaber, Yousef, Radio Slave, Victor Calderone, Julia Govor, Nastia, and more from locations around the globe.
Viewers will be able to donate throughout the stream, which will take place on Beatport’s Twitch, Facebook, and YouTube channels. All funds raised will directly benefit Choose Love Ukraine, a non-profit organization providing vital aid and services to those fleeing Ukraine in the form of emergency medical care, food, shelter, clothes, support for the LGBTQIA+ community, and more. With the forced displacement of millions of people, Choose Love Ukraine aims to provide safety and hope for many in this desperate time of need.
As part of the fundraiser, Pioneer DJ will be giving away prizes including DDJ-400 DJ controllers, DM-40 BT speakers and 20 pairs of VM-70 active monitor speakers to the online audience.
The broadcast will feature real world events and solo artist streams from around the world. Live events will take place in New York at Public Records, in partnership with New York-based queer collective Community Bread; Lisbon at Ministirium; Sydney at The Point/Shell House; and Berlin at Baketown; with additional artists joining in from Brazil, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Spain, and more.

“Over the course of the past few weeks, we’ve seen the world unite in support of Ukraine and the ongoing crisis faced by its citizens. Beatport stands with Ukraine, and wants to do our part in helping the country by hosting another ReConnect event directly benefiting Choose Love Ukraine, a fantastic charity helping citizens safely flee the country,” said Robb McDaniels, CEO of Beatport. “With an amazing lineup of world renowned electronic artists, we hope to make this ReConnect our biggest yet.”
Mark Grotefeld, AlphaTheta EMEA said: “Pioneer DJ’s mission is One Through Music. This is music’s higher potential; it brings all peoples together; it can help us let go of our perceived differences and unite. The antithesis of One Through music is War. So, we are honoured to be supporting Beatport, who have taken the industry lead in this initiative, to raise desperately needed funds for our brothers and sisters in Ukraine during this horrific time.”
A central hub of the DJ community for nearly two decades, Beatport believes in the eternal power of music to unite the world even in the most difficult of times.
Beatport’s ReConnect initiative began in March of 2020 as the COVID-19 pandemic brought the world to a halt. With the goal of bringing the greater music community, as well as charities together during unprecedented times, ReConnect aims to connect people while benefiting important causes. Since its March 2020 inception, ReConnect has hosted two multi-hour live events benefiting those affected by COVID-19, raising over $260,000 across the two outstanding streams. Later that same year, Beatport ReConnect hosted For Beirut, an initiative geared towards raising funds to support those in Lebanon affected by the Beirut explosion, and for You Are Not Alone, a mental health organization. Over the course of its existence, Beatport’s ReConnect series has raised more than $600,000 for charities across the globe.
