When TIDAL decides they want to do something big, they do it all the way and for a good cause. The music and entertainment platform just announced the lineup for their 3rd Annual TIDAL X: Brooklyn charity concert and it features an all-star lineup. Hosted by Angie Martinez, the lineup includes JAY-Z, Jennifer Lopez, DJ Khaled, Kaskade, Chris Brown, Cardi B and more. The concert will take place at Barclays Center on October 17 and will also benefit and support relief efforts for those affected by natural disasters, including Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Irma, Hurricane Maria and the earthquakes in Mexico.
TIDAL has joined forces with presenting sponsor BACARDĺ rum, who also committed $1.3 million specifically to TIDAL X: Brooklyn charities. Additionally, the two entities join Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s Empire State Relief and Recovery Effort for Puerto Rico by covering the cost of cargo planes desperately needed to transport donated goods (i.e., cleaning supplies, toiletries, canned food, clothing, etc.) to Puerto Rico. Whether you’re in it for the music or the charity element, you’re sure to feel good about supporting the upcoming show. Other artists to perform include Fat Joe, Remy Ma, Daddy Yankee, Yo Gotti, A$AP Ferg, Vic Mensa, Fifth Harmony, Joey Bada$$, Willow Smith, Belly, Iggy Azalea, Jessie Reyez, Mack Wilds, Machel Montano, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Mr. Eazi, Charly Black, Princess Nokia, Tee Grizzley, Rapsody, Kranium, Chloe x Halle, Cipha Sounds, Victory and more. We also get special appearances by Rosie Perez and Lin Manuel-Miranda.
Since the first TIDAL X in 2015, the concerts have raised more than $3 million for social-justice and education non-profits and this year will be no different. One hundred percent of ticket proceeds will be donated to organizations including: The Empire State Relief and Recovery Effort for Puerto Rico, Global Giving, All Hands Volunteers, Kids in Need Foundation, Direct Relief, One America Appeal, Greater Houston Community Foundation, American Civil Liberties Union, Miami Community Foundation, Habitat for Humanity in Puerto Rico and more.
