Swedish House Mafia Hosts a Black Tie Rave to Benefit Victims of Hurricane Sandy


Few things are better for a lover of electronic music than an all-night rave lasting late into the night featuring the music of a headliner like Swedish House Mafia, but what if it's for charity? While most of us East Coast folks have returned to life as usual, for many who recently bared the brunt of Hurricane Sandy's wrath, the destruction and interruption to their lives is still a very real and present thing. To help with this ongoing suffering, Swedish House Mafia has dedicated their February 28th show in New York City to raise money to ease the suffering of the victims, with 100% of the net proceeds to go towards helping them get their lives back on track via the Mayor's Fund to Advance New York City and the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund. The first third of the tickets will go on auction on December 14th, and if you're interested to get your hands on them, head on over here or to Ticketmaster. Seriously, get some of these tickets, you won't regret it.

It's for a great cause and Swedish House Mafia puts on an incredible show, so if there was ever a concert worth attending. This is it.

Here's your invitation:

Axwell, Steve Angello & Sebastian Ingrosso from Swedish House Mafia would like to invite you to attend an intimate Black Tie Rave on February 28th 2013 in a town that’s played a huge role in their career – New York City. As the band roll in to play sold Madison Square Garden and 3 Barclay Centre shows, this unprecedented intimate affair will see New York’s finest come out to raise money for the after math of Hurricane Sandy. All profits raised will go directly to the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City & the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund. The tickets will be put into three unique 72 hour auction processes.

Auction 1 with one third of the tickets in it starts Dec 14th 2012 at 10AM EST. Ticket links will appear on this site beforehand and will of course be listed on Facebook and Twitter.

This Rave is not for the faint hearted. Dress Code is strict. Black Tie and Ball Gowns. So whether you buy something new, vintage or just go and borrow something…if you fail to turn up in Black Tie or Gown we may still turn you away!

There will be plenty of other items up for auction as we approach the event and ways to upgrade your evening still further! This event is for over 21’s and some of the alcohol sales in the venue will also go to the charities. Naturally the band are receiving no fee, our crew will be working for free, there will be no free guest list and most of our suppliers are already committing to free or at cost supplies…all of which will be named and thanked on this web site as we get closer to the show.

So... New York City.

Shall we dance?
