American DJ and producer Seth Roxler has donated $10k of his artist fee for this weekend’s Ultra Mexico directly to the Mexico City Earthquake Relief fund. Now he is publicly urging all other DJs in attendance and on the lineup to do the same.
Seth is urging DJs to donate at least 10% of their artist fee if not $10k. As of now, the only DJ on the Ultra Mexico lineup to have donated is Martin Garrix.
He’s taken to Twitter to publicly rally major headliners like Afrojack and Armin Van Buuren, even going as far to @ them; With good reason.

The 7.1 earthquake hit Mexico City on September 19 and caused significant damage to the city’s infrastructure. Just yesterday it was reported that all body-recovery efforts have ended. Despite the major destruction and more than 300 casualties, Ultra Mexico has decided to continue the festivities.
On a lighter note, Ultra organizers have announced slashed ticket prices and plans to donate half of all proceeds to the disaster relief fund.
