The Gorilla Collective Announces Virtual EDM Festival in Memory of Slain Gorilla, Rafiki – EDM.com


The Gorilla Collective, a nonprofit environmental conservation initiative, has announced they will be hosting a virtual music festival fundraiser in memory of Rafiki, a silverback gorilla who was tragically killed in June 2020 by a hunter. A collection of electronic music artists and DJs from all around the world will come together October 15th through 17th in support of cultural and wildlife conservation in Bwindi, Uganda. 

The virtual festival will feature a variety of genres from Afrobeats to Drum & Bass, with hopes of raising money to protect Uganda’s mountain gorillas for generations to come. Due to COVID-19, there has been an increase in desperation due to lack of food for the people of this region, causing them to hunt in the national parks. This was the situation in the case of Rafiki, one of Uganda’s best known mountain gorillas of the famous Nkuringo group, who was murdered by a hunter earlier this summer.
