Bristol DJ’s Raise Over £1,700 for Charity in a 24 Hour Live Show
Updated: Jul 18, 2021
Some of Bristol’s best club DJ’s from around the city came together to put on 24 hour live show, all in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust.
In collaboration with Pytch, a virtual events venue in Bristol, the show made us of an extensive production set including a huge LED screen, lights, smoke, and much more. Here’s a few clips from the show.
The show featured a huge variety of DJ’s playing an eclectic mix of music including: Disco, House, RnB, Hip Hop, Dancehall, UK Garage, 90’s Classics, Drum and Bass, and much more. DJ’s from the likes of O2 Academy, Pryzm, Lakota, Basement 45, and many more took part.
Organiser of the event, James Stephens, had this to say: ‘The DJ industry has been in hibernation for the past year, and I wanted to show people that the local DJ community could come together to help a raise money for a good cause. Initially it started off as a relatively small project but turned into something much bigger by the end of it. I would like to thank everyone who tuned in and watched the show, and to everyone who donated. Special thanks goes out to the venue host, Pytch, and to all the DJs and audio technicians that volunteered make this event happen – a 24 hour event requires a lot of preparation and focus (and energy drinks and food!). The event was a huge success - so far we have raised £1,700, and that will really help towards supporting young people aged 13-24 with cancer. Donations will remain open until the end of June, if you’d like to donate.
Tracy Burns, Relationship Manager for Teenage Cancer Trust South West and Wales, said ‘We are incredibly grateful to DJ James Stephens and fellow DJ’s who organised and ran their 24 hour DJ-a-thon in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust to raise vital funds to support young people with cancer. Teenage Cancer Trust has worked for over 30 years, in partnership with the NHS, to create and build a specialist cancer service for teenagers and young adults across the UK. We do all that we can to improve a young person’s experience of living with cancer, so that cancer doesn’t stop them living their lives. This amazing group of Bristol DJ’s have raised £1,700 and this will help us to continue to be there for young people with cancer when they need us most.
Donations are open until the end of June, so there is still time to donate: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/charitydjlivestream
