Performers include Kevin Saunderson and Dantiez, Carl Craig, Matthew Dear, Seth Troxler, Wajeed, Claude VonStroke, DJ Godfather, Ataxia and others, with virtual afterparties TBA.

The Chainsmokers, meanwhile, will host the Virtual DisDance Festival from Friday through Sunday, May 22-24, on SiriusXM's BPM channel, with performances by Marshmello, Deadmau5, Calvin Harris' Love Regenerator project, Steve Aoki, Armin van Buren and a 2011 set from the late Avicii at 5 p.m. Saturday.

Both events will solicit contributions to MusiCares' COVID-19 Relief Fund.
