There’s no denying it: What happened in Nepal was completely tragic.
To be completely honest, I don’t even know if that word is suffice to what really happened.
But having a friend/workmate over there when the first earthquake hit? That was a terrifying feeling – knowing that she was there to trek around and in surrounding areas of Nepal.. Really scary stuff.
Thankfully, she was in her hotel when it happened and was safe. And now she’s back in Sydney. Phew!
For those who were less fortunate, however, the Nepal Earthquake saw more than 7000 deaths, destroyed homes and cities, and way too many injuries.
To help out everyone that was affected, Melbourne have come together in a way that I know all too well for them to do – as a community to raise funds.
Beatmaker Amin Payne has stepped up to the plate and is curating “Remedy No. 5: Nepal Earthquake Aid”.
“Like many across Australia and the world, Melbourne’s community of electronic musicians were devastated to hear the news of the tragic Nepal Earthquake and it’s catastrophic effects. The community has come together for a special event – the fifth Remedy on Sunday May 10th at Section 8. All proceeds raised will be donated to The Big Umbrella; a Melbourne-based NGO supporting relief to Nepal; Learning Planet; a non-for-profit who have a team on ground in Katmandu Valley and Tashi Gurung a Kathmandu resident who will be assisting in local aid support.”
Suggested donations for entry are $10, and a $15 donation will include a raffle ticket. $5 for every additional raffle ticket and the draw will be on the night.
Melbourne’s finest resident DJs and producers have donated their time and music to the event happening on Sunday, May 10:

“We live in a time where we often forget or turn a blind eye to a situation we feel may be out of our control. The time has come to change that interpretation and fix the situation. Remedy is the united force of Melbourne’s finest purveyors of electronic music. And together, we’ll help to fix as many of these situations as we viably can, or help at least.” – Remedy
