Attendees at Amnesia Ibiza nightclub have raised money for charity by dancing the night away.
The initiative grew out of the new “Rave To Save” app, trialled at Amnesia this month, which donates €1 (85p) for every 100 steps taken by each club dealer to a range of charitable causes.
The app follows ravers’ footsteps via wristband, and together the clubbers have raised more than €300,000 (£255,000) for charities such as Women In Music.
Nicole Barsalona, president of the charity, said: “The ‘Rave to Save’ campaign shows that all parties have the power to make a positive impact on the future of entertainment.
“Together we can make the party experience safer for everyone.”
Attendees who logged the most steps during the night were invited to another party with Peggy Gou and free drinks.
Gou said of the initiative: “I think it’s important that we continue to talk about gender, sexuality and race inequality in the music industry and on the dance floor, because it’s important that we continue to encourage and celebrate diversity in the dance scene. parties”.
The app will be tested at several events before the end of the year, including the Elrow parties in London, Barcelona and Amsterdam.
Elsewhere, The Chemical Brothers have been announced as headliners for the Amnesia Final Festival in 2022.
Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons will play an exclusive DJ set at Amnesia on October 15th to close this year’s season. “This season has been very special for Amnesia Ibiza, a summer full of moments and energy that has never been seen before,” the club said in a statement. “A season like this deserves a great ending, so the Amnesia team has gone to work to do something out of the ordinary for their last party of the year.”
“And who better than The Chemical Brothers to break the mold and treat us to one of their historic DJ sets?”
In addition to the Chemical Brothers, the soon-to-be-announced Amnesia Final Festival will feature a “poster featuring the best artists of the moment”.
