Always wanted to see your favourite DJ’s play Football? Then get ready for FootJam.
Taking place on June 18th at Club de Futbol Barceloneta in Barcelona, FootJam is a DJ star studded charity football tournament that aims to raise money for Save The Children in Spain. During Sonar, one of the busiest events in the Electronic Music Industry calendar, FootJam brings you music, drinks and more importantly a game of football all hosted by some of your favourite faces in electronic music!
After the successful first edition last year set up by Ben Pearce, FootJam returns this summer hosting an array of top DJ names from the worlds of house and techno, who will play the event between 2pm and 4pm. Puma are supporting by providing kit and media outlets from Deep House Amsterdam to Vicious Mag are all involved + The Society and of course Ben Pearce, as the founder.
Artists confirmed are: Ben Pearce, Huxley, Patrick Topping, Adana Twins, Finnebassen, dOP, Doorly, Shlomi Aber, Alexis Raphael, T Williams, Theo Kottis, Beesmunt Soundsystem, Prunk, Lehar, Musumeci and many more to be announced next week.
Plans are afoot for the series to carry on in Ibiza this summer, as well as in Amsterdam during ADE, but this inaugural tournament is the one to be at if you want to see some musical superstars showcase their football talents.
The charity we will raise money for is ‘Save the Children’. It is the world’s leading independent organisation for children. They work in around 120 countries, where they save children’s lives, fight for their rights and help them fulfil their potential.
They work to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children and to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives. Across all of their work, they pursue several core values: accountability, ambition, collaboration, creativity and integrity.
In 2014, they reached over 55 million children directly through their own and their partners’ work.
All the players, teams and people involved will make a donation to Save The Children. If you’d like to make a donation, you are more than welcome to do so here.
