Rise and Shine Festival Shows Us How to Party for a Purpose

If there’s one thing we love here, it’s partying for a purpose! We have a long history of supporting great causes, that also happen to align with super fun dance parties! So when we heard about a 3-day festival that’s end goal was to send kids to camp, we knew we were in!

Rise & Shine Famjam Fundraiser is an amazing little party that dedicates itself to sending a bunch of kids, in need, to camp with their friends. Oh, and check out this lineup.

Some of the best of the best in the festival circuit including B.C.-born hunks Moontricks, long-haired funk peddler Stickybuds, local hero Neon Steve, hip-hop sensations Illvis Freshly, and of course, some of the folks who put it all together, Average Gypsy. Not to mention dozens more high end bass music purveyors, this one is gonna be so much fun!

Not a ton of info is available, so far, but their Facebook page had this to say:
