For months, Australia has been facing some of the worst Bush Fires ever seen. In the last week, the fires have intensified extremely; about 15 million acres of bush have been burned and destroyed. Thousands of firefighters and volunteers have been working for months to control this wildfire. Unfortunately, 24 people and half a billion animals have been killed so far due to the terrifying bushfires.
The Dance Music Community has been reacting and responding to this heartbreaking issue. Dance Music Artists such as Alison Wonderland, Fisher, Timmy Trumpet, David Guetta, and Steve Aoki have attempted to raise awareness of the fires through social media and are urging their fans to donate to fire relief efforts. Some artists themselves have donated their profits to help fight the bushfires. You can view their responses down below.

WOW ❤️ Thank you to everyone that showed up and showed out last night. we raised $44,500 through ticket sales, merch sales and donations. Our heart breaks for the victims so we have decided alongside the Espy that we are are going to round up that figure to $50,000. The donation will be split evenly amongst RFS-QLD, RFS-NSW, CFA-VIC & Red Cross Fire Appeal.
