“Inspired by the writings of Adrienne Maree Brown and Audre Lorde, this year, we welcome pleasure, beauty, and regenerative practices in all of our endeavours as we organise a global celebration of the Earth, powered by local communities. By harnessing the power of horizontal and design thinking, we can share our tools and resources and build community around nightlife, music, arts and nature.” – Lola Villa, Strategy at DJs 4 Climate Action

Founded in 2018, Earth Night is DJs For Climate Action [DJs4CA]’s annual global event series, which takes place every April during Earth Week. Earth Night’s events are brought together by DJs, venues and promoters around the world to demonstrate how our collective, directed actions can combine to incite change which is truly inspiring and impactful – furthering DJs4CA’s work to harness the influence of electronic music and DJ culture to power climate solutions and generate action. 

Scientists, activists and frontline communities continue to warn of impending climate meltdown, yet leaders have so far failed to provide solutions. In the face of immense overwhelm and resulting climate paralysis taking hold globally, Earth Night emphasises local, community-led actions that spread joy whilst moving the needle towards climate justice. The unique event series taps into the power of music to engage and educate communities; music holds the power to touch people’s hearts and change their minds, so supporting the cultural transformation that is necessary to address climate change. 

This year’s Earth Night places a spotlight on regenerative practices, embodying a commitment to leaving the places celebrated even richer than when found. DJs4CA are committed to hosting events that minimise plastic use and avoid air travel, prioritising sustainability in every aspect. Their event lineups prioritise local talent, promoting diversity and fostering a sense of community connection led across an organisational structure which encourages collaboration and inclusivity – resembling natural networks like mycelium.
