Missed the Thank You Festival? We've got you covered.
Missed the Thank You Festival last night?
I'm right there with you. MOST of our team was there, but a few of us were stuck in the office. (Such #FOMO)
19,000 people descended on Merriweather Post Pavilion in Balitmore, MD to celebrate progress for the world's children with Tiesto, Krewella, Above and Beyond, Cedric Gervais and Alvin Risk.
They were joined by Raj Shah, the Admistrator of USAID, the US's governments foreign aid distributor, who announced a $50 million commitment to ensuring access to education around the world.
We also had a giant inflable toilet (yeah you read that right), an awesome magnetic poetry wall, among other things...
But first and foremost, it was a night to rock out with some of our favorite EDM superstars. Below are some tweets, pics, and videos from the night (try not to get too upset):
BEST NIGHT EVER!!!! So glad I went. I would do it a million times over. #thankyoufestival— Christopher Ickes (@all_thats_evil) June 27, 2014
