Two cities. One rave! Rave UKraine unites DJs and ravers across simultaneous live events in Liverpool and Kyiv, sending a message of support and solidarity to the people of Ukraine. Using the power of music, Rave UKraine will bring people from different cultures and countries together on the dance floor of CONTENT in Liverpool and HVLV Bar ft Hangout in Kyiv.

Hot Chip, the acclaimed band from the UK, will be performing a DJ set at the anticipated, one-off event. Ukrainian DJ Mingulitka is also confirmed to be playing a set, alongside icons of electronic music DJ Paulette, James Lavelle, Jodie Harsh, Sarah Story and Human Margareeta.

The event is a first of its kind: a party taking place in two cities, at the exact same time, thousands of miles apart – both broadcast via a livestream to make one singular, unifying rave. New venue CONTENT Liverpool will host the UK rave, while Kyiv’s HVLV Bar will be the venue for the Ukrainian one.

The acts announced for the Ukrainian rave at HVLV Bar are: Petya Cantrust, Jane, Raavel, Pledov and Lostlojik.

The daytime raves are being streamed into both venues, connecting clubbers to each other in real time – and before Kyiv’s nightly curfew kicks in. We’ll also welcome a global audience to our live-streamed Liverpool rave, with ticket sales and streaming proceeds donated to Ukrainian humanitarian charity UAME | MUSIC SAVES UA.
