Some big names in dance music will come together next month for Rave For Refugees, two club nights to raise money and awareness for the Help Refugees charity.

Daphni, Eats Everything, Faithless, Jon Hopkins and Skream will DJ the first event on 8 Dec, with Chase & Status, Rudimental, Shy FX and Sigma appearing at the second, on 15 Dec. Further DJs will be announced in the run up to the event.

“We are incredibly proud to be supporting the charity Help Refugees in their formidable effort to help the plight of thousands of refugees around the world”, say Chase & Status in a statement. “Rave For Refugees is an amazing chance for the music industry to come together and support a much needed cause through two amazing club nights”.

Sigma add: “We’re extremely humbled to be part of such a great event for an amazing charity. It’s incredible to see the industry rally behind such an important issue as this. We hope this helps encourage others to support Rave For Refugees. No human being is illegal”.

Meanwhile, Help Refugees co-founder Lliana Bird explains: “We are heartened that so many of these incredible artists are coming together to help the most vulnerable people on Europe’s shores. There are still 60,000 refugees stuck in Greece, including 24,000 children and 9,000 pregnant women and they will need all the help they can get to survive the cold winter ahead”.

Tickets for both events went on sale this morning. More information here.
