The sun is threatening to come out, and that can only mean one thing, the summer festival season is upon us. And this summer, the Thank You Festival is going to be the EDM event of the season.
Glow in partnership with The Global Citizen movement, and the World Childhood Foundation, will host the event in an effort to motivate and educate socially active youth about the causes and consequences of extreme poverty.
Globally renowned headliner Tiësto stated,
Through my work with the World Childhood Foundation, I’ve learned about the millions of kids who are battling abuse and even dying from diseases that have known cures. I hope all my fans will join me in working with these amazing organizations to help these children all around the world live and become healthy and strong so they can enjoy their childhoods.
Nothing gets your summer off to a blistering start more than a killer music festival, for a good cause so get ready for the Thank You Festival coming this June.
In the meantime, get planning. Buy your tickets; check out the insane lineup of artists you won’t want to miss and get hydrated for the area’s biggest and best summer festival.
