YouTube and anti-Aids organization (RED) have teamed up with Australia’s Stereosonic Festival to bring a slew of exclusively streamed content from some of Dance music’s biggest stars. Hosted in Melbourne and featuring a high-end line-up of global club favorites, a selection of performances from the festival will be streamed through the video platform to raise awareness of the life threatening disease. Led by the mission to lower the number of infants born with HIV to zero by 2015, the likes of Tiësto, Avicii, Calvin Harris and Tommy Trash will be among the handful of artists to join the live stream and extend a very heartfelt cause to the now thriving global Dance community.
Update (2/12): Watch most of the broadcasted sets again via YouTube below. (Avicii at 18:35, Calvin Harris at 1:23:30, & Tiësto at 2:22:36)
Anti-AIDS organisation (RED) will be streaming live from the Stereosonic 2012 festival on December 1st and 2nd.
In hopes of raising awareness over the elimination and transmission of HIV from mothers to their babies by 2015, the World AIDS Day weekend will see a live stream hosted on (RED)’s YouTube channel, featuring performances from Tiësto and more at this year’s Melbourne stop of Australia’s biggest dance music festival.
In further dance-related (RED) news, Tiësto has partnered with the non-profit organisation to release a ”DANCE (RED), SAVE LIVES” compilation on November 27th – featuring an exclusive collaboration between Tiësto and Bono on U2’s ‘Pride’ – with proceeds going to the Global Fund to fight AIDS.
