Many musicians who otherwise kept opinions to themselves have become more politically active since President Donald Trump's election. Zedd became very vocal during the election process. He even threatened to leave the country if Trump was elected, though he has since decided to stay and fight for what he thinks is right while creating music that spread positivity throughout the world.

His latest endeavor puts his money where his mouth is – and yours, too. He's throwing a benefit concert for the ACLU, called Welcome "for obvious reasons," and he just dropped the phase one lineup on Twitter. It's huge, featuring performances from Skrillex, Incubus, Macklemore, Tinashe, Imagine Dragons, Daya, and Halsey. The show is scheduled for Monday, April 3, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, and this is is only the beginning. Check his tweets below for more info.
