"The electronic dance music culture is often portrayed as being about drugs, but as DJs we want to help those who have been impacted by substance abuse," said Ruben "Rez Vidal" Rosario, one of the DJs performing at LMF.
Tim Lockett, better known as DJ Eros said, "I've seen a lot of people struggling with homelessness and drugs, and I see this as an opportunity to encourage those in a cycle of destruction and emptiness to seek a positive direction from positive people."
"LMF is just one of many events we are planning to positively impact the community," said Brandon Crowder, also known as DJ Ophicial.
Lakewood Music Festival will be held May 6-7, 2017, 12pm to 2am, at Dwight Lakewood Ranch, 1502 Lakewood Road, Lakeland, FL 33805. Over 20 DJs will be bringing their best to party with you and help those in need at the same time. Tickets are only $20, and parking is $5.
In the words of Issac "DJ Cerebus" Cintron, "Leave the drugs, and let the music carry you through. Happiness will follow just right around the corner."
