What Dance Did Right: Buy A Portable Festival Shower & Another Will Be Donated To A Refugee

A 22 year old Dublin entrepreneur has created a collapsible shower meant to aid hygiene in both the festival space and the refugee camp (the question of why these camps don’t have adequately hygienic facilities seems to be a futile one at this point…another reason to punch your local right winger in the face). Originally intended as a portable sanitation area for festival and event attendees, the savvy philanthropist has stepped it all up a notch offering the product also as a donation to refugees, at a ratio of 1:1.

Thursday, September 17, marks an important day in the dance music calendar. No, it’s not the kick off to Winter Music Conference, ADE or BPM, but rather the day the dance music community came together in humanity and compassion to bring awareness to one of the most pressing human stories of our day. Antwerp, Belgium’s club IKON will host a 3 room electronic music exclusive event, with some of the world’s leading artists in the field.
