FEATURE: Carl Cox rocks Last Night A DJ Saved My Life House of Commons event

Carl Cox rocked the House of Commons on Wednesday 11th May 2016 at the House The House charity event to raise awareness of Last Night A DJ Saved My Life (LNADJ)’s and War Child’s text to donate initiative to support children in conflict zones.

House The House was attended by MPs, charitable donors, and figures from across the music and media industries. The legendary DJ Carl Cox was supported by 19-year old Holly Louise, overall winner of the House the House nationwide DJ contest, and 16-year old Stanley Hood, winner of the 14-16 year old category providing admirable competition for the house and techno don.

6 regional finalists competed to win a place to play alongside dance music legend, Carl Cox, at the House of Commons. The initiative was set up to raise money and inspire the UK dance music community to champion a positive contribution to children in conflict zones across the world. For those not lucky enough to have attended the event, you can see all the action from the night with BE-AT.TV.

The regional heats were held in 6 UK cities and supported by the education partner, Access to Music, an educational body that develops creativity and vocational ambition via relevant engagement and guidance within the music industry.  The organisation has provided training to thousands of musicians across the UK. 

Jonny Lee, Founder of LNADJ says: “What an incredible evening! This was a hugely important event for a vital cause - raising funds by getting young people engaged through their love of music. The entries were amazing this year, and Carl, Holly, and Stanley, all played fantastic sets. We’d like to thank everyone involved for making this a tremendous success.”  

The event follows the ground breaking launch of ‘House the House’ in 2013, when Fatboy Slim and competition winner Bryce Fury made history by becoming the first DJs to play in the House of Commons.
