Spin the Vote Video: EDM Votes!

Posted: Updated:

Spin the Vote (a project of Rock the Vote and Insomniac Events) and some of the biggest EDM artists in the world want you to know how important it is to register and then VOTE in the 2012 presidential election. Spin the Vote released this video as part of our year-long efforts to activate and empower our community of fans, friends and artists to raise our voices and register to vote - many states' voter registration deadlines are this week!

Top American DJ Kaskade says it best: "You need to go out and vote." And since you can't vote if you don't register, we're hoping this video inspires thousands of electronic dance music fans nationwide to have their voice heard in this important election year!

The Spin the Vote video includes memorable shout-outs from:

  • Kaskade
  • Morgan Page
  • Pretty Lights
  • Paul Van Dyk
  • Rebecca and Fiona

The video also features the track "In The Air" by Morgan Page, Sultan & Ned Shepard, and BT (Featuring Angel McClusky), out now on Nettwerk records, available on iTunes. Many thanks to Morgan and his team for arranging for this song to be part of the Spin the Vote effort in 2012, and to the team at Dancing Astronaut and all the Spin the Vote partners for helping us spread the word.

This video will energize the whole EDM community with a special call-to-action: it's time to dance for democracy! The massive, youth-based audience for EDM has amazing political potential -- so it's important that these fans participate in the democratic process and flex their electoral power. Do your part and share this with your friends to make sure your whole crew is registered and ready to SPIN THE VOTE!

Don't forget: "Without freedom, you have nothing... There are no festivals like this unless we make ourselves heard." Steven Hernandez, Spin the Vote Volunteer
