Dance Music’s biggest names battle it out on the soccer field during MMW
Miami Music Week has traditionally been a time for the world’s best DJs to come together under the Miami sun to showcase their skills behind the decks. This year, they’ll also be showcasing their skills on the soccer field! On March 21 at noon EST, teams comprised of top talent representing the Netherlands and Sweden will face off for charity and the fight against AIDS.
The skill is incomparable as Dutch captain Tiësto leads his teammates Afrojack, Nicky Romero, Quintino, Sidney Samson, R3HAB, Sunnery James and Ryan Marciano against Swedish captain Sebastian Ingrosso and his teammates Alesso, Adrian Lux, Dada Life (both), AN21 and Otto Knows. The game will consist of two 30-minute periods with a ten minute break in between.
Each team will play in the signature colors of their country and will have a custom jersey made especially for this event. At the end of the game each jersey will be signed by each participant in the game and auctioned by (RED) with all proceeds going to the Global Fund to fight AIDS in Africa. (RED) is currently focusing its efforts on helping to end the transmission of HIV from moms to their babies by 2015, one of the markers of “the beginning of the end of AIDS.” For more details about the auction follow (RED) on Twitter @joinred.
The game will be filmed, with highlights and interviews with the players going live on (RED)’s Youtube Channel the following week.
Let the debate begin…who will win dance music’s ultimate battle of bragging rights – Team Netherlands or Team Sweden?
Sebastian Ingrosso (Captain)
Dada Life (Olle and Stefan)
