The event hinted only at performances from Lake and friends, treating attendees to a night of all-star music starting with Chris Lorenzo at 9:00 PM and closing out at 3:00 AM with VNSSA. In between was a B2B between Cassian and Nighttime, an hour-long set from Hayden James, a midnight performance from Lake himself, and a B2B with MK and Lee Foss. 100% of the proceeds, an estimated $52,000, will be donated to relief organizations.
