If you’ve been keeping up with the whereabouts of the Swedes over the past few weeks you are more than well aware that they’ve been searching for a venue in New York City to host a benefit for those affected by Hurricane Sandy. This Tuesday, they finally announced that they will be hosting a one-of-a-kind black-tie rave at Hammerstein Ballroom as a fundraiser for Sandy victims.
The funds will support immediate aid needs – including food, cleaning materials and hygiene supplies – as well as long-term relief and restoration. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and First Lady Mary Pat Christie launched the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund four days after Hurricane Sandy devastated the Garden State, to help communities recover, rebuild and come back stronger than before.
Speaking about the event, Swedish House Mafia stated, “New York City has been a massive part of our journey and there was no better way to say thank you than to help out along with so many other worthwhile events. We had the night off in NYC before our Madison Square Garden gig…and what better way to spend it!”
The event is not only unique in terms of required attire–a “black-tie rave”–but also unique in how fans can grab a chance to see the Swedes live before they start their lengthy stint of Manhattan performances. In a display of outstanding generosity from the EDM Titans the tickets will actually be auctioned off with 100% of the net proceeds being donated to the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City and The Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund.
General Admission tickets to the event will be auctioned at ticketmaster.com starting on Dec. 14th at 10am ES through Dec. 16th at 10pm EST. Starting bid is $100.00 per ticket and fans can purchase a minimum of 2 tickets and maximum of 4 tickets. To gather all the information you might need on the event, please visit blacktierave.com
