Ravers, start your browsers: Insomniac, the creative force behind EDC Orlando, is hosting a virtual Rave-A-Thon Nov. 20-21 with electronic music heavyweights helping to keep the party going at home.

Kaskade, Afrojack, Loud Luxury and Cat Dealers are just a few of the 15 artists performing during the two-night event. This virtual party is one of several in a series of Rave-A-Thons and comes after the cancellation of EDC Orlando, which was previously slated to take place over three days this month and attract hundreds of thousands of ravers.

The online event, hosted by Insomniac CEO Pasquale Rotella, will help revelers keep the festivities going remotely while raising donations for Rave Recovery and In Place of War. Rave Recovery helps support those in the dance community experiencing hardships due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and In Place of War supports community leaders in conflict zones throughout the world.
