A line filled with many fans of internationally acclaimed dance music superstar, Martin Garrix, was wrapped around the Exchange nightclub building located in downtown LA. Anticipating Garrix’s arrival, his jubilant fans dressed in some dope customized T-shirts with Garrix’s name on the sleeves to show that they were ready to party with him for a great cause.

The party was sold out. Before the fun started, there was only one rule to party: you must buy and rock an “FCancer” T-shirt to gain admission.

“For me, it’s a cause that hits close to home. So I wanted to do something to give back and something that resonates with my generation,” FCancer’s co-founder, Julie Greenbaum, who rocked the teal ribbon color “FCancer” T-shirt in honor of her mom, said to LAEntNews.

Nearly everyone is affected by cancer. If you have not been diagnosed with it yourself, chances are you know someone.

“Before we merged a few years ago, I had started my half of the organization about six years ago after my mother passed away from ovarian cancer,” (Julie Greenbaum). 

Dance music superstar, DJ Martin Garrix, hit the red carpet wearing his gold ribbon “FCancer” T-shirt. He was thrilled to be able to spin his upcoming single, “Lions in the Wild” as he suddenly shouted on the red carpet to his admiring fans, “Raise up your middle fingers.”

His fans stopped all the pandemonium surrounding the red carpet and immediately reacted to Garrix’s plea by lifting up their middle fingers in the air.

Garrix spoke with LAEntNews on the red carpet, sharing a few songs that he would have in his personal playlist to encourage those battling cancers.

“Tonight is a special night for me. I am very thankful and blessed to make and play music for a living. It’s special for the fact that I can use it for a great cause. I am excited to raise money and awareness for supporting those affected by cancer.”
