A totally free NYE online party, Rave To The Moon is the world’s first charity rave-a-thon aiming to stomp the distance to the moon with the collective steps of ravers across the world.

Rave To The Moon has been created by world-record-breaking beatboxer SK Shlomo. Contact viewers will remember his Homeskool Beatbox Adventures earlier this year, which were livestreamed right from our Facebook page. Rave to the Moon will also be live-streamed from our page, alongside other arts organisation across the country.

So What’s Going On?

The livestream takes place 8pm-1am on Thursday 31 December 2020.

Virtual DJ sets will come from global stars including Rob Da Bank, Mr Scruff, Arielle Free, Ellie Prohan, DJ Yoda, Basement Jaxx’ Felix Buxton and Vula, Beardyman, Heartless Crew and more.

Ravers will be counting their steps towards the grand total real-time using the free app Sweatcoin. There will also be leaderboard and a battle for the top spot. Whilst the livestreamed party is free for anybody in the world to watch via global music community Mixcloud Live. Plus, up to 1000 lucky ravers will take centre stage in the Zoom Room to show off their moves.

Offering a fun way to raise money, partygoers will be able to donate or fundraise by setting up a special JustGiving page for any charity of their choice. (Hey, don’t forget that Contact is also a registered charity…)

In a time when mental health has never been more important, Rave To The Moon aims to bring the
world that little bit closer, celebrate the end of 2020 and starting the new year as we mean to go on: with a big bang.
