A 16-hour online event of peace and solidarity, raising funds for charities supporting people in difficulties during COVID.

It’s never easy, but we feel grateful to be healthy, under a roof with food.
We are conscious that some others are going through harsher times, when their physical and mental health deteriorated, when some lives, homes and jobs were lost. Meanwhile, volunteers from non-profit organizations are actively risking their own safety everyday to go out and support people in need, struggling from this new wave and long-lasting isolation.

On Sunday August 29th, we will invite viewers to donate to charities we picked : Saigon Children, Đêm Sài Gòn, Blue Dragon, Oxy cộng đồng Sài Gòn (more information about the charities below). Funds raised will be equally distributed. For this 16-hour event, Gãy commits to donate 16.000.000 VND — generated from previous raves ticket sales — to kickstart the fundraising.
Alongside, we are joining hands with Vietnamese artists from across the country (Hà Nội, Hoi An, Saigon) and across continents (Asia, Europe, North America) to offer a intimate and raw daylong videostream of soft music, contemporary dance and talks about mental health during lockdowns.

Usually channelling ourselves through intense rave energies and hard dance, Gãy will explore the opposite side of the spectrum and will play a wide range of soothing sounds : classical, nhạc trịnh, nhạc đỏ, acoustic, ambient trance, psychedelic jazz, electronica, ritualistic folk, chill hip-hop, massage spa music, downtempo, soundtracks, idm, synth pop, post-club…
Our music for this lovestream will allow you to relax and do other activities in parallel, reading, cooking, writing, napping…
