Rave UKraine – the historic event taking place in Liverpool and Kyiv simultaneously on Sunday 7th May – has announced its first wave of acts confirmed to be performing.
Hot Chip, the acclaimed band from the UK, will be performing a DJ set at the anticipated, one-off event at CONTENT. Ukrainian DJ Mingulitka is also confirmed to be playing a set, alongside icons of electronic music DJ Paulette and James Lavelle. More acts will be announced shortly.
The event is a first of its kind: a party taking place in two cities, at the exact same time, thousands of miles apart – both broadcast via livestream to make one singular, unifying rave. New venue Content Liverpool will host the UK rave, while Kyiv’s HVLV Bar feat. Hangout will be the venue for the Ukrainian one.
The acts announced for the Ukrainian rave at HVLV Bar feat. Hangout are: Petya Cantrust, Jane, Raavel, Pledov and Lostlojik.
Both raves will be live streamed to the other, in partnership with a globally-renowned editorial streaming platform – so the music and dancing can cross borders in a show of unity and solidarity with Ukraine and its culture during the Russian invasion.
Rave UKraine is part of the cultural festival ‘EuroFestival’, taking place for two weeks in May while Liverpool acts as Host City to Eurovision 2023. Tickets for Rave UKraine are available now via Dice FM / Resident Advisor. All profits from Rave UKraine go to Music Saves UA.
