DJs and Industry raise £50K+ for Bridges For Music & Choose Love

Share

After four days and 500km by bike, 26 Artists/Industry bodies arrived at ADE last week and raised over £50k for Bridges For Music and Choose Love. 

The riders kicked off the cycle on Sunday from London, battling through injuries, rain, wind and of course, very sore legs. 

Stretched across four days, the ride will pass through France and Belgium to arrive in Amsterdam on the 19th of October (around 3/4pm) for the biggest dance music conference in the world.

The event was set up by the charity, Bridges for Music, to raise funds for its program that provides quality education to young talent in underserved communities in South Africa. However, with the war taking place in Ukraine this year’s ride has partnered with Choose Love to help supply humanitarian aid for refugees.

The cycle was Bridges For Music’s 6th edition, which over the years has raised over €200,000 to help with the construction and running of a pioneering learning centre in Langa Township, South Africa.

With riders from Pioneer, One House, Paradise World Wide, The Good Times Co, Olympic Cycles, Bridges For Music, MRG Productions, Beanstalk, JJPPVV,  Parlophone, RA, Elrow, Defected, Toolroom, as well as artists Juliet Fox, BEC and Dope Saint Jude all helping fundraise, everyone did amazing and it’s not late to donate to say well done :   https://www.justgiving.com/team/ade2022

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
