The organizers the event, Andie Leon (Academy LA), Lorne Padman (Dim Mak) and Tyson Illingworth (tyDi), explained their reasoning behind throwing the event in LA stating, "The feeling complete helplessness got too much for us here in LA, and we knew we needed to channel our energy into something bigger than ourselves. We’re stoked to see how the dance music community has been so supportive this cause and we look forward to seeing our friends and family at Academy on January 29th".

For those who can't make the event, it will be broadcasted on SiriusXM Diplo’s Revolution on Saturday, February 1.
