This weekend some of the biggest names in EDM are joining forces to help save the Vancouver Aquarium. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak our world-renown aquarium hasn’t been open since March, and is facing shutting down forever.
In order to help save it, Vanic and his management at Game Theory have organized the music and gaming digital event, Ocean Meets Music! All proceeds will be donated directly to the Vancouver Aquarium to help keep it afloat. Don’t miss this must attend event kicking off Saturday, July 18th from 6PM to 1AM ET (3PM to 10PM PDT) where Vanic will be joined by Cheat Codes, SAYMYNAME, Gammer and 10 other artists!

Taking a new twist on the digital events is Ocean Meets Music’s additional gaming component. Happening mid-event is a live gaming competition in Valorant, a PC dedicated multiplayer game. Combining the diverse worlds of live streaming, music, and gaming will help bring greater awareness to the cause.
It also gives fans a chance to interact with artists inner gamers and see a whole new side of their personalities. The full list of artists taking part in the Valorant tournament include: KUURO, JERICHO, Emong, Vincent, QuarterJade, JakenBakeLive, LIONE, JVNA, Team Liquid Mendo, SanchoWest, Calcium and a secret special guest!
Not only is the Vancouver Aquarium dear to our hearts, but it’s also the headquarters of Ocean Wise Conservation Association, where scientists, educators and conservation experts work. Right now you can sign a petition that will help save the Vancouver Aquarium, as well as donate directly to the cause. Lasse Gustavsson, president and CEO of Ocean Wise spoke further on the event:
“We were thrilled to hear from Vanic and the Gametheory Management team with the idea for a digital music festival, we are fighting for our long term survival and this is an example of a really innovative idea that allows us to connect with new audiences, and raise critical funds and awareness about the Vancouver Aquarium’s role as an education, conservation, animal rescue and research institution.”
