Young DJ With Cancer Receives Dying Wish From EDM Community [VIDEO]
Beatport is teaming up with HARD events to bring a heartwarming story to the EDM community about a young man with terminal brain cancer striving to see his dream of becoming a DJ superstar come true. Beats4Tanner is a film that follows the story of Tanner Seebaum as he fullfills his dying wish of DJing on the world's biggest stage during the weekend of EDC Las Vegas at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.
Some of EDM's biggest stars have shown their support for the documentary, with Skrillex providing the music and Krewella, Datsik and Downlink offering up interviews. Diplo also makes a special appearance.
Proceeds from the film will benefit DJ Seebaum's non-profit Tanner Seebaum Foundation and will help fund medical research on treatment of pediatric tumors of the brain and spine.
The film will premiere its trailer at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado on July 30 and will see its world premiere during the Las Vegas Film Festival on August 13. Beats4Tanner was directed by The Mash-Up Kings and produced by Matthew and Stephanie Seebaum, as well as Landon Dykesterhouse.
