Sunday Love: Earth Night Benefit for Climate Action with Meso Creso
Join Meso Creso as we team up with our friends DJs for Climate Action (djs4ca.com), Flash, and local climate change artists and activists for a special edition of Sunday Love. Earth Night (earthnight.org) is a call to action, a global initiative that seeks to harness the power of music and nightlife to celebrate and raise visibility and resources for climate action.
Meso Creso is especially excited for this special Earth Night edition of Sunday Love because we know that culture, music and dance have always played a key role in building support for social change.
100% of the proceeds Meso Creso receives from this event will go as a donation to Sunrise Movement - a local youth-led organization propelling the momentum on climate action (sunrisemovement.org). “We're building an army of young people to stop climate change and create millions of good jobs in the process.”

Meso Creso is a Washington DC based-but-borderless arts collective that promotes creativity without boundaries, social consciousness, staying up, and getting down. Meso Creso is known for its roving hookah lounge, highly crafted art installations, joyful whistles and hand claps, and a DJ lineup that represents the rich cultural mix of its community.
Meso Creso seeks to be a safe space for all sexualities and genders. We love consent-based activities, believe that altered states are no excuse for bad behavior, and have a zero tolerance policy for those who think or act otherwise. Because of this, we are proud to have Safe Space volunteers at all of our events. These individuals are trained in bystander intervention best practices and are there to provide the community with support. You'll know them by their light-up flower crowns!
DJs for Climate Action is a coalition of DJs and musicians that use their craft and cultural influence to raise awareness and provoke response to the global challenge of climate change.
What started with year-end offset drives to take responsibility for air travel emissions has grown
into partnerships with advocacy groups, event production, and social mobilization. DJs for Climate Action remix the climate message to engage and inspire.
