New York, NY—Global music and entertainment platform, TIDAL, and New York City’s largest poverty-fighting organization, Robin Hood, will host TIDAL X: 1015 on October 15 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. TIDAL’s second annual philanthropic festival is designed to raise awareness, and funds in order to create positive social impact focusing on education initiatives around the world. This year’s all-star lineup features: Alicia Keys, Beyoncé, Nicki Minaj, Ms. Lauryn Hill, Common, TIP, DNCE, Emeli Sandé, Prince Royce, Blood Orange, Salva, Cipha Sounds, Ross One, Angie Martinez and more. TIDAL Rising acts include Mark E. Bassy, Lil Yachty, Kevin Garrett, Danielle Bradbery, Sir The Baptist, Bebe Rexha and Levi Carter.

In 2015, the inaugural TIDAL X benefit concert, known as TIDAL X: 1020 Amplified by HTC, raised more than $1.5MM which was allocated in grants to a select list of organizations promoting social and racial justice. The star-studded concert, which was held on October 20, 2015, garnered the support of key acts such as Beyoncé, JAY Z, Lil Wayne, Nick Jonas and Nicki Minaj, who performed at a sold out Barclays Center.

Thanks to the festival’s underwriting sponsors, including Jetluxe and American Family Insurance one hundred percent of all ticket sales will benefit Robin Hood and TIDAL-supported nonprofit organizations dedicated to improving education locally, nationally and abroad. TIDAL is committed to supporting philanthropic endeavors of its artists. From charity concerts to social justice immersions, TIDAL helps artists shed a light on organizations and movements that matter to them most, as well as help fundraise.

We know that education can advance communities and can be the most powerful tool for change. Robin Hood has helped transform communities in positive ways by supporting education programs that generate meaningful results.”

“All of us at Robin Hood are thrilled to partner with our friends at TIDAL to create one of the greatest concerts of all time,” said David Saltzman, executive director of Robin Hood. “The show will be even better because it will raise money for the most effective poverty-fighting tool there is: education.

There are no better partners.”
