The launch will take place at The Alchemist Bar in Nairobi, Kenya featuring world-renowned producer and DJ, Art Department, and some of Kenya’s most exciting talent; SURAJ, Foozak and Dylan-S as well as The Legend.
100% of all proceeds from this event will go to The Lions Guardians Foundation – a conservation dedicated to finding and enacting long-term solutions for people and lions to coexist across Kenya and Tanzania.

MAAC (Music Against Animal Cruelty) is a non-profit organization with one simple directive: to aid in wildlife conservation. MAAC is a vehicle conceived by Jonny White of Art Department fame and long time friend and founder of Pulse Radio, Wade Cawood in collaboration with Tears for Tigers founder Jack Baucher to act as a broker between musicians, music industry and music fans alike, and organizations who are working on initiatives to save various animals facing the dangers of a diminishing population and/or extinction. Ultimately MAAC’s objectives will extend to curating large-scale events with the intention of raising substantial funds, allowing us to curate our own initiatives. In the interim, we will be working as a “fund” to which anyone can contribute. We, in turn, will select various “grassroots” initiatives as beneficiaries. Whether it be to save lesser-known animals who desperately need our help like the Wild Dog, or to enable Rangers to educate land-owners and farmers as to how they can safely utilize their land to produce crops or livestock without harming local wildlife, our mission is to help.
