Outrage over President Donald Trump’s travel ban has prompted a spring fundraising concert for the American Civil Liberties Union that will feature a diverse lineup, including Macklemore, Imagine Dragons, Incubus, Miguel and Skrillex.
DJ and producer Zedd, a Russian-born immigrant, organized the April 3 concert called “Welcome!” at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Other performers include Bebe Rexha, Camila Cabello, Machine Gun Kelly, Mija, Daya, Halsey and Tinashe.
“All of us artists have a huge responsibility, whether we want it or not,” said Zedd, whose real name is Anton Zaslavski. “I was really surprised how above and beyond people were willing to go to be part of this show.”
