Giving Back, Looking Forward

Rave Recovery is a relief fund created specifically for dance music fans impacted by the COVID-19 health crisis.

Looking out for one another and giving back have been cornerstones of rave culture since people first set foot on the dance floor. With so many experiencing hardships brought on by COVID-19, those principles are more important than ever. Even though we’re isolated, no one should feel alone. Rave Recovery was created to support fans within our dance music community who need assistance—and hopefully inspire others to reach out, connect, and give back. The fund is being administered by In Place of War, a 501(c)(3) organization, in partnership with Insomniac Cares. 

Since 1993, Insomniac has been dedicated to creating unforgettable experiences that inspire people to come together and be the best version of themselves. Our mission is to help fans endure through this adversity and stay positively focused on a future where we can all reunite on the dance floor.  

We will get through this together, and we are grateful for your support!




In Place of War is a global charity that uses artistic creativity as a tool for positive change, and has established a COVID-19 emergency fund to support the change-makers and community leaders we work with across 24 conflict zones in Africa, the Middle East, and Latin America. In these communities that already face the challenges of conflict and extreme poverty, the impact of COVID-19 is multi-faceted. Like Insomniac, In Place of War believes that music and the arts can bring peace and understanding to the world’s most harshly impacted communities.
