Copa del Rave will kick off its inaugural charity soccer tournament in Los Angeles next Wednesday (April 17) with Diplo, Wax Motif and Cedric Gervais among the players confirmed to take the field for a good cause.
Teams represented by eight companies in the realms of electronic and dance music — including Astralwerks, Red Light Management and Insomniac — will compete in the event, with proceeds going to VH1’s Save The Music Foundation and the winning team’s charity of choice.
DJs from Dublab will be performing throughout the day with Dick Beaver of Dirtybird Campout serving as the tournament’s commentator. Following the championship match, a special back-to-back set will feature performances by Ardalan, Wax Motif, Chris Lorenzo, Heidi Lawden and several surprise special guests.
The charity event will take place at Evolve Project in L.A.’s Frogtown neighborhood between Coachella weekends. For more information, visit Copa del Rave’s website.
