Copa del Rave Charity Soccer Tournament Returns To L.A. In November – Billboard

The electronic music industry’s premier soccer tournament, Copa del Rave, is returning to Los Angeles on November 2 with teams forged from electronic music artists and industry figures.

Confirmed DJ players include Copa co-founder Ardalan, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Xie, Zomboy, Zen Freeman, EDDIE and Borgore, with more to be announced. 

The tournament will also feature teams from CREATE Music Group, Capitol Music Group, Downtown Music, INFAMOUS, Red Light Management, Symphonic Distribution, YourArmy/ATC and The Free Agents. 

The tournament is once again happening at Evolve L.A., in the city’s Frogtown neighborhood. Games begin at 3p.m. and run until 8p.m. A spectator donation is requested. A donation is also required from each competing team, with the winning team getting to select the charity that will receive the money raised.

The first three installments of Copa del Rave raised more than $40,000 in donations for the LA Mission, which provides support to homeless people in L.A.; MusicCares, a Recording Academy organization that helps people in the music industry going through hard times; and Give a Beat, which uses music to help people impacted by the criminal justice system.

Previous players include Diplo, GG Magree, Wax Motif, Ardalan, TEED, The Chainsmokers and more. Kappa won last year’s tournament, with the previous two editions won by Red Light Management.

“Copa del Rave is back! We might be older and slightly more injury-prone, but the hunger out on the field is still real,” tournament co-founders Alastair Duncan, Jonathan McDonald and Ardalan said in a joint statement. “We’re truly grateful for all the teams and DJs participating, who are willing to get out there and play for a good cause.”
